As per the National Blood Policy of the Govt. of India, we have to ensure easy, accessible and adequate supply of safe and quality blood and blood components collected /procured from voluntary
non-remunerated regular blood donor in well equipped premises, which is free from transfusion transmitted infections and is stored and transported under optimum conditions.
Whenever there is a need of transfusion of blood or blood components to the patients, the relatives of the patients have to search the addresses of blood bank and face a lot of inconvenience in
getting the blood & blood components. With a view to overcome this difficulty it has been decided by the Govt. to make the blood and blood components available through motorcycle in a cold chain
box from District hospital to the nursing homes and dispensaries in the area of radius of 40kms or within the reach of 1 hour.
The scheme of Blood on Call has been named as “Jeevan Amrut Seva” and provided with 104 toll free number.
