Through these Organ Retrieval Banking Organisations (ORBO), "the government will initiate programmes to carry the transplant process further ahead," Ramadoss said.

The need for organs was very high and "donation of organs of brain-dead persons will be encouraged by providing awards and free railway passes to the relatives," he said.

His comments come in the wake of several scandals in kidney transplant this year in Chennai, Mumbai and other cities.
