Maha Govt to Give 61K/Month to Boost Organ Donation


The Maharashtra state government has decided to give Rs 61,000 each to the four Zonal Transplant Coordination Centres (ZTCCs) that spread awareness and coordinate sharing of organs between hospitals. Beginning November, the government will give Rs 61,000 each to the Mumbai and Pune ZTCCs. As soon as Nagpur and Aurangabad ZTCCs start functioning, they too will get the monthly pay.

“At present, Mumbai ZTCC manages its expenses through donations. Now, the government has decided to help the process,” said directorate of health services’ assistant director Dr B C Kempipatil. Whenever a brain dead patient is identified, the hospital concerned calls up ZTCC, which decides who gets the organs.
