With the advances of science and technology particularly in the field of medicine and surgery it has become possible to remove organs from living as well as deceased persons and to transplant such organs to save lives of suffering human beings. This advancement brought evil as well. Commercial dealings in human organs especially kidneys, started increasing. Thus a need for a comprehensive legislation for regulating the removal of organs was felt as matter has been agitated by the parliamentarians as well as various national bodies, medical, legal and social experts. On the other hand, in the absence of any law the removal of organs from persons suffering brain - stem death has not been possible. Transplantation of organs like liver and heart for which latest technology is available in the country, had been impeded. Under the circumstances it became necessary to enact a comprehensive law. The Transplantation of Human Organs Bill, 1992 was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 20 August, 1992. After being discussed by both the Houses of Parliament it was referred to a Select Committee of both the Houses. The Select Committee presented its report on 21 December, 1993. On the recommendations of the Select Committee the Bill was again discussed in both the Houses of Parliament.
 
ACT 42 OF 1994
 
The Bill was passed by both the Houses of Parliament and it received the assent of President on 8th July, 1994. After it was assented it became THE TRANSPLANTATION OF HUMAN ACT, 1994 (42 of 1994).
