Zonal Transplant Coordination Centre – Nagpur

Transplant of Human Organ Act, 1994 was implemented in the State of Maharashtra on 23rd February 1995. The Govt. of Maharashtra appointed the Director of Health Services (DHS) as the “Appropriate Authority” (AA) and the “Authorization Committee” (AC) comprising of the following members.

  1. Director of Medical Education and Research, Mumbai (DMER)- Chairman
  2. Director Health Services- Member
  3. Dean, Grant Medical College, Mumbai- Member

The main objective of the Act is to have legal and qualitative organ transplantation of human organs, the general norms/guidelines necessary for the medical professionals and hospitals involved in organ transplantation. Based on the recommendations of various experts, the AA has formulated the guidelines to undertake this highest of altruistic act.

In 1998 the Maharashtra Govt. put up a draft proposal for setting up ZTCC Mumbai after studying similar organizations elsewhere in other countries which would suit the Indian scenario. The purpose of ZTCC was to improve organ donations, procurement & transplantation system in the city of Mumbai initially & then adopt the same module all over the State. This would increase the availability & access of donor organs for patients of end organ failure in the State of Maharashtra.

After the successful working of ZTCC Mumbai in December 2001, the Govt. of Maharashtra established ZTCC in Pune and recently at Nagpur (December 2012) and Aurangabad.

  1. Effective deceased organ procurement.
