The Minister said, “Jeete ji Raktdaan, Marne ke baad Angadaan” should be the motto of our life.” 

He further added that the rate of organ donation in India has increased by four times as compared to 2012-2013. He said, “It makes me immensely proud to share that the total number of organ transplants done per year in the country has increased from 4990 in the year 2013 to 12746 in the year 2019 and India now ranks third in the world only behind USA and China as per the data available on the Global Observatory on Donation and Transplantation (GODT) website. Similarly, the organ donation rate has increased to about four times as compared to 2012-13”.

The Minister also said that there’s a huge gap that the country is facing amidst the number of patients who need transplantation and the number of organ donors after death.

Significance of Organ Donation:

By explaining the significance of organ donation the Minister said, “Our culture puts emphasis on “Shubh” and “Laabh” where individual well-being is rooted with the greater good of the community. It is my honor to be participating in 12th Indian Organ Donation Day, a day that is celebrated for the noble cause of organ donation. Since the year 2010, Indian Organ Donation Day is being celebrated every year to commemorate the contributions made to society by dead donors and their families.”
