He had been suffering from kidney ailments for some time and had been admitted to The Wockhardt Super Specialty Hospital in Nagpur on Tuesday. Owing to his ill-health, he could not attend a scheduled music concert in the state's second capital.

As there was little improvement in his condition, Mr Jain was airlifted to Mumbai by his family on Wednesday and admitted in the ICU of Lilavati Hospital and kept on a ventilator.

Born blind on February 28, 1944, Mr Jain started his musical career in the early 1970s and went on to compose some of the most memorable numbers in superhit movies like Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se, Chitchor, Chor Machaye Shor, Geet Gaata Chal, Shyam Tere Kitne Naam, Ram Teri Ganga Maili and Henna.
