The total journey was completed in just seven minutes and 18 seconds, which usually takes about 45 minutes.

Major General Rajvir Singh, the Commandant of Command Hospital, Chandimandir, said, "The Command Hospital, Chandimandir, had been a leading hospital in northern India to promote organ donation activities, and had carved out a niche for itself by carrying out eight multi-organ retrievals of liver, kidneys and corneas, including from PGIMER, Chandigarh, in record time."
