One of the major medical advances in the present century is organ transplantation. Transplantation of human cells, tissues, or organs are medical procedures that enable greatly to restore of essential functions where no other alternatives of comparable effectiveness exist.  The practice of organ donation and transplantation has been significantly enhanced through medical advancements and research and designing (R&D). Now, organ transplantation has become a life-saving procedure, especially the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, cornea, including bones, ligaments, etc., and many more.

Although, the lack of organs is essentially a global issue. However, Asian countries including India are considerably lagging among the rest of the world. In our country, Organ transplantation gained momentum in the late 1980s paced up in the mid-1990s, especially after the Transplantation of Human Organs Act was passed by Parliament in 1994.  The need of hour is to address one of the biggest challenges to bridging the ever-increasing demand and supply gap.
