Close to 600 patients are registered with the ZTCC to receive a kidney. The number of patients waiting is up to 10 times more than those who end up receiving one.Dr Rajesh Kumar, nephorlogist at Dr LH Hiranandani hospital, said: “It is a good decision and will help end-stage kidney patients get good health care. Unlike other states, Maharashtra had VAT as well as Octroi. For buying a single dialysis, we spent Rs60-70,000 only on taxes. For a single filter which is used in the dialysis, we paid Rs100 on taxes.”
