Donor kin veto alone can’t halt organ gift to unrelated patient: HC


Mumbai: The Bombay HC has set aside a government panel's decision to prevent a Madhya Pradesh flour mill owner from donating a kidney to his cousin, a goods loader, who is undergoing treatment at Jaslok Hospital. 
    The state authorization committee had rejected the cousin's plea to donate because his own brother and minor daughters were opposed to his decision. The court has asked the panel to consider the flour mill owner's request again.
    India's transplantation law allows only close family comprising spouse, parents and children to donate organs freely. Unrelated donors require permission. 
    Bombay HC has clarified that the law on transplantation of human organs "does not confer an overriding veto on the next of kin of the donor" when the donor and donee are not close relatives.
