Issues that the process will eliminate
The two main issues, which are associated with the organ donation, are the waiting time and the appropriate information. Removal of the organs, immediately after the death of the person will assist the doctors in saving the life of another person. Most patients who are in a brain-dead state are not in a position to state their desire. The other problem that the doctors face is the lack of information on the part of the family members.
As organ donation is not that popular in the Indian society, most people do not share the information with their family members. In most cases the family members come to know about the pledge of the person after the death. They are so grief-stricken at that time that it becomes hard for them to comprehend with the new information. Most families do not allow the organ extraction process. Thus, with the seeding of the Aadhar details with the donor registration process, gather information about the person will be easy. All the doctors need to do is scan the fingerprint of the person and know about the organ donation pledge of the person.
With the information in their hands, the doctors will be able to start the task of convincing the family members of the dead or brain-dead patient in preparing themselves mentally for allowing the hospitals in staring the organ extraction process.
The initiation process of the program will happen when around 1500 people, aiming to create a new world record by performing mass Yoga will also take the pledge of donating their organs after death. They will mark the starting of the seeding of the Aadhar card with the organ donation registration as well in the state.
Criticisms of the scheme
Though many see it as appositive step to be good there are some critics of the program as well. Anivar Aravind is one such critic who commented that all these details are very private. With the seeding of the Aadhar code with these documents, the state and the central government will have access to the confidential information of a person’s life. Thus, there is requirement of a law that will be able to protect the misuse of these details by crooks.
