The Gujarat Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has canceled licenses of 15 blood banks in the state for not following standard practices to store and distribute blood. The state regulator has asked these blood banks to pull down the shutter as they are repeated defaulters.

As per the rules, a 24/7 blood bank is required to have at least three Blood Transfusion Officers (BTOs) working in shifts. It is also mandatory that while collecting and transfusing blood, its components such as plasma, white blood cells are tested in the presence of a BTO to avoid fatal mistakes. The Gujarat FDA considers these blood banks as substandard due to the unavailability of kits to test antibodies and other equipment related issues. There were 156 blood banks in the state, and with these cancellations, 141 have licenses to operate.
