Abstract:

The enactment on the transplantation of human organs covers the procedure from removal, storage and transplantation of organs and tissues. The rising health failures have created a hike in the demand for organs and tissues to save lives. The ambit of the law is very wide and covers various definitions, procedures, eligibility, and penalties, but why does it still suffer from infirmities itself?From its year of enactment in 1994 until now major objectives of the act stand largely unfulfilled. With the passage of time and the gravity of the situation has changed the objectives have again transformed themselves into challenges. The establishment of authorities doesn’t suffice for the fulfilment of objectives and streamlining the efficiency of the process. The paper covers proposed reforms which should be holistically implemented to enhance organ availability and strengthen the process without further delays. The utmost need to spread information, education and proper propagation of the provisions of the act is pending. This shouldn't be the last option for a family to consider but plan post-death or if someone wishes to make a living donation to save another life without harming or causing detrimental effects to oneself.
