The e-Blood bank enables electronic monitoring of blood collection, testing, storage and final use and disposal. By making such key data available in public domain, it brings in transparency in availability and disbursement of blood units. Citizens who are looking for blood can use the web-enabled system thereby reducing their dependency on personal and other sources for blood. It also helps to weed out professional donors and touts.
According to the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) data, out of the 2,760 blood banks in India, 2,711 are already on a digital platform.
eRaktKosh was Inaugurated on 7th April 2016 to enforce Drug & Cosmetic Act, National blood policy standards and guidelines ensuring proper collection & donation, effective management and monitoring the quality and quantity of the donated blood.
