Mumbai: With a view to streamline procedures for coordinating organ transplant, the Maharashtra government has made it mandatory to declare `brain death` and certify it accordingly. In the current situation, availability of organs for transplantation is falling woefully short of the demand, while organ transplantation is considered as the only treatment for end stage disease. Considering the fact that a large number of brain deaths occur in non-transplant hospitals, an appropriate authority, as per the Transplantation of Human Organs Act, 1994, shall take the initiative to register those hospitals that fulfil the conditions as non-transplant organ retrieval centres, said the recent government resolution (GR) issued by the health department.
