While West Bengal has around 10 lakh bodies pledged for donations, cadaver transplants are few and far between due to lack of infrastructure and a legal framework. This, even after former Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya has pledged his body and organs along with many other eminent citizens. In Kolkata, Sovana Sarkar's family is lucky. After the 70-year-old was declared brain dead on Thursday her family decided to donate her organs according to her wishes. But they had to wait for four days to complete the process. Lack of guidelines, infrastructure and a legal framework was the reason for the delay.
