Nephrologist 's  Response
Hi, As per the human organ trasplnatation act 1994 , only parents, siblings, children and spouse only can donate kidneys.. Any other type of kidney tarnsplantatiopn is called " unrelated" . However , some states have their own " authrization committe" which can approve " unrelated " based on certain criteria as per the recommendation by the treating nephrologist.
Unrelated Tx has got certain problems like rejection of the graft kidney, excess tendency for infections etc.
