In India the regulation related to the removal, storage and transplantation of human organs is provided by The Transplantation Human Organs Act, 1994. For more information on this please check out the following link.
According to the act the Donor should be alive, 1st-degree relative (Spouse, Son, Daughter, Father, Mother, Brother or Sister).
For International Patients, a Living Donor Transplantation is suggested. This is because the Center for Liver Transplant Surgery has a long waiting list since cadaveric organs are not frequently available. Priority on the list is decided on the disease severity and first-come-first-served basis. Although international patients and Indians stand an equal chance of obtaining a cadaveric organ under this system, the list is long and the wait may well be several months or even a year. A very long waiting is logistically impossible for most international patients traveling to Chennai for transplant. Hence, they are all advised to bring along suitable living donors and go for Living Donor Liver Transplant Surgery.
The Donor should be alive, 1st degree Related / Spouse, Blood group matched with no decompensation, Diabetes mellitus and Hypertension, below 50 years of age.
