The Rs 340 crore project was approved by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) standing committee.

It also had the backing of the central government and the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO).

The approval comes nearly 15 years after the Supreme Court of India had directed both the central government and NACO to establish such a center in order to reduce the blood collection deficiency, which stands at 85,363 units of blood in the city.
