Strict Laws Preventing Organ Donations in the Country

In many of the western countries for example USA, the laws are easy, and India should also try to implement some of their provisions said Sandeep Kumar Vice President of ‘Donate Life’.

Sandeep Kumar who is also a 1989-batch IRS officer stated that there is an immediate need to alter the laws related with cases like a human organ transplant.

The present law related to organ donation allows organ donations form a ‘close relative’. A close relative can be defined as spouse, son, daughter, father, mother, brother or sister.

According to Sandeep Kumar, NGOs have advised all the states to prepare their laws related to cases like organ donations, but a very few of them have formulated or altered the policies on such an important topic.

Among all the states of the country, Gujarat asked to form some inputs. To this, he stated that "We have recommended them to expand the definition of 'near relative' and include friends, brother-in-law, sister-in-law and other relatives.”

The numbers of people who are in need of some of the vital organs for example kidney, liver, eyes are in lakhs but as per the strict laws related to organ donation, people are very reluctant. When it comes to donating organs stated Sandeep Kumar, whose various organisations are trying to spread awareness as on the respective topic.

Low Awareness:

He further added that “There is very low willingness among people to donate organs also because of low awareness. Costs of such transplants are also very high. It ranges from Rs 3 to Rs 3.5 lakh for the kidney. The government should look at ways to reduce the cost."

According to the statistics as per numerous surveys, it was reported that more than one lakh people in India need a kidney, but the number of people who receive them is as low as thirty thousand. This means that around ninety percent of the people who are on the waiting list lose their lives without receiving organ or donor. The annual liver transplant required in India is around twenty-five thousand and out of which we manage to arrange only eight hundred.
