    You might have to prove that the recipient and you have been staying together and sharing the same kitchen for 10 years or more.
    You have to also produce "old photographs showing the donor and the recipient together" .
    Under the draft of the Transplantation of Human Organ Rules, 2012, prepared by the health ministry in consultation with experts on August 30, an unrelated donor may also be interviewed along with his/her family member "regarding awareness about his or her intention to donate an organ, the authenticity of the link between the donor and the recipient and the reasons for donation".

      Because there is an enormous  and growing organ trafficking type of organized crime -- basically the mafia --  preying on poor people: "I'll pay you $500 for a piece of your liver (or a kidney)!"  Or they are taking organs from poor people who go to their clinics for health issues without even telling them.

      The donor victims are always people in dire economic straits and/or too young or uneducated to understand the health risks they'll be dealing with for the rest of their lives -- assuming the organs were harvested by consent; in many cases they are taken without the victim's knowledge while under anesthesia in the ER or for any sort of medical procedure.

      The recipients are at risk, too, since these lucrative operations fall outside of regular health care monitoring. Most do not provide follow up care or make sure the organs won't be rejected, often killing the recipient.
