Reeja P. v. District Level Authorization Committee

  • Order

Transplantation of Human Organs Act, 1994 – Simply because a donor is coming from a poor family, there is no hindrance for donating the organs.

Donor and recipient are from poor family. There is no rule that, poor people can’t donate organs. Being poor is not a sin. The people with big hearts are there in plenty in our country and they can save them. That is how we can reduce the difference between haves and have-nots. [Para 9]

Transplantation of Human Organs Act, 1994 – The intention of the District Level Authorization Committee for Transplantation of Human Organs should be only to find out whether there is commercial transaction. A friendly atmosphere is to be created while interrogating.
