Context: The Union Health Ministry has mandated that all cases of organ transplants, whether from living or deceased donors, must be assigned a unique National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO)-ID for both the donor and the recipient.

  • This directive aims to curb commercial dealings in organs, particularly those involving foreign citizens.
  • Hospitals are required to generate the NOTTO-ID from the NOTTO website.

 

NOTTO is a national-level organization under MOHFW which undertakes activities of coordination and networking for the procurement and distribution of Organs and Tissues.
