Sheriff M | New Delhi | Updated: September 14 2017 9:18 am Under the country’s laws only blood relatives including the spouse are accepted as “living near-related donors” Top News When he first walked into the nephrology OPD at a Delhi hospital in May last year Mansoor Rafi 45 a driver from Bareilly carried two files with him The first contained his medical reports which showed that his kidneys were failing and the second file had a set of photographs “He was medically fit as he was undergoing dialysis regularly However I told him that there was an urgent need for a kidney transplant I asked if he had blood-related donors who would volunteer to donate a kidney” recalled Dr Vikram Kalra Senior Consultant Nephrology and Renal Transplant VPS Rockland Hospital in Delhi “I told the doctors that my brothers were not willing to donate and my wife’s blood group was different But I told them that I have a friend who had volunteered to donate his kidney” said Rafi Dr Kalra’s first response was that it would be “highly impossible” to accept such a donor “However I told him that if he could prove that he had a longstanding emotional relationship with the donor there was a small chance… You have to prove that you were emotionally attached before the illness was diagnosed” he said Rafi then showed them the second file — of photographs taken 12 years ago when he and his friend Vipin Kumar Gupta 44 had visited the Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Dargah in Ajmer with their families “I told them that both our families had visited the Dargah We also visited the Balaji Temple on our way back Some of the photographs also showed our neighbours who are witness to our relationship” said Rafi The case was then referred to the state authorisation committee “The authorisation committee checks if any financial transaction was involved It also examines if the donor is willing” said Dr Kalra Over the next one year Rafi and Gupta were rejected thrice by the authorisation committee Till the approval finally came in May this year and Rafi got a new kidney earlier this month — one of the few cases of organ donation cleared on grounds of “affection and attachment” “Both the donor and the recipient are drivers roughly earning the same salaries Rafi could barely afford his treatment So it was well established that there was no financial transaction This was a genuine case where a friend had a special reason to donate his kidney” said Dr Ambar Khaira who carried out the transplant Under the country’s laws only blood relatives including the spouse are accepted as “living near-related donors” While a “near relative” can be approved as a donor citing “affection and attachment towards the recipient or for any other special reason” it is very rare for a friend to be cleared in this category Explaining their relationship Gupta said: “He is my guru In 2001 I used to work in my father’s sweet shop Rafi used to visit us I told him that I wanted to learn to drive For months he took out time to train me Today if I am able to provide for my family it is because of him This is just a small gesture” said Gupta The first hurdle he said was to prove to the committee that he was “mentally fit” “They told me to get a certificate from a hospital in Bareilly The staff at the hospital said I would have to be admitted for 15 days I told them I only wanted to prove that I was mentally fit… This was their first case They asked me if I could differentiate between a bird and an aeroplane” recalled Gupta “After two more visits they finally gave me the certificate” Gupta and Rafi also had to make over six visits to the SDM’s office “The authorisation committee rejected us thrice Each time we had to visit the SDM’s office or the tehsil office to get the required documents We stood for hours outside the office to get the documents” said Rafi Each time the committee rejected their papers the tehsil office would delay the required visit to their houses “The committee asked us to get documents to prove that our residences had been surveyed However no official would come Gupta would miss a day’s work and remain at home to wait for them… It is because of his patience that the committee finally gave its approval” said Rafi Last week Rafi was discharged from hospital He said Gupta had given him a new lease of life But Gupta said they were indebted to Rafi “Seven years ago my wife suffered a complication during my daughter’s delivery I did not have money for her treatment… It was Rafi who took care of everything… The kidney donation is just a small gift” he

65000 Express Top News With the state government issuing draft rules last week to regularise illegal constructions lakhs of illegal structures across Maharashtra primarily including those in Pimpri-Chinchwad and in Pune city will get a breather While the government’s move has been welcomed by political parties — BJP especially is most ecstatic — top leaders and civic officials are holding themselves back for studying the fine print of the draft rules before sticking their neck out In Pimpri-Chinchwad the government will have to decide the fate of as many as 26000 illegal structures that come up on reserved land Illegal structures dot every length and breadth of the town BJP had made it the top of its poll agenda both during state and civic polls “BJP has kept its poll promise to the residents of Pimpri-Chinchwad” said BJP MLA Laxman Jagtap who is also the party’s local unit president BJP general secretary Sarang Kamtekar said there were at least around 15 lakh illegal structures in Pimpri-Chinchwad which were going to be regularised PCMC officials however put the figure of illegal structures at around 65000 On Friday the state urban development department headed by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis issued draft rules to regularise illegal structures across the state which came up by December 31 2015 The government has invited suggestions and objections on the draft rules in a month The draft rules envisage regularisation of illegal structures that have come up on land reserved for public amenities other than for schools gardens and playgrounds In such cases those who set up illegal structures will have to provide an alternative land at their expense In Pimpri-Chinchwad there are over 26000 illegal structures that have come up on land reserved for schools gardens playgrounds and other purposes Civic officials say this means that thousands of illegal structures will not be legalised and will have to be demolished “The government will have to take a call on such structures” said an official However BJP leaders said of the 26000 illegal structures on reserved land slums occupy the large chunk on open spaces “As per the norms the slum dwellers will have to be rehabilitated elsewhere under the Slum Rehabilitation Act” said Kamtekar who got the figure — 26000 illegal structures on reserved land — through an RTI application BJP leaders believe that there is a possibility that the illegal structures that have come up on land reserved for schools and gardens will get regularised The process of formulation of the new development plan for Pimpri-Chinchwad is under way The tenders for existing land use (ELU) have been invited Once the private agency submits the ELU report during the preparation of the revised DP there is always the possibility of shifting the reservation concerned where illegal structures have come up” said Kamtekar Civic activist Vijay Kumbhar said “Under any condition the government or the civic bodies will not be able to regularise illegal constructions on land reserved for schools and gardens This is because there is a Supreme Court ruling in Manohar Joshi case barring any regularisation on land reserved for public amenities like schools Senior PCMC officials on condition of anonymity question the move on providing alternative land by those who have built illegal structures on reserved land “Suppose a building has come up on a one-acre reserved land This means the occupants of such illegal buildings will have to provide one acre land at some other place Imagine the current cost at which they will have to purchase the land…this does not sound practical” said an official BJP leaders however said this falls under the category of “accommodation reservation” “The occupants will have to pay only 15 per cent cost of the built up area on the land…they do not have to pay for the entire land” they said NCP the main opposition party said though they welcomed the move to regularise the illegal structures they needed time to study the draft rules “Last time the CM promised to waive penalty tax fully However they have decided to recover Rs 550 crore penalty tax from the citizens They say one thing and do exactly the opposite Unless we get the full picture we won’t like to give it a green signal” said NCP leader Yogesh Behl Shiv Sena BJP Shrirang Barne said “It was a long welcome move but I too wouldn’t like to comment much until I am able to understand as to how many citizens will benefit by the move” In case where the occupants have violated FSI norm they will have to pay compounding charges say the draft rules Similarly the rules envisage compounding fees for violations in connection with parking space staircase and other parts of the structures Another Sena leader Maruti Bhapkar said the compounding fee levied for regularising the illegal structures should be minimal “Therefore the idea that occupants should provide alternative land sounds weird” he said For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sandip G | Updated: August 8 2017 10:29 am India will be without Ravindra Jadeja in the third and final Test against Sri Lanka (Source: Reuters) Related News Why was Ravindra Jadeja suspended for the third Test The left-arm spinner was suspended because he had accumulated six demerit points inside a 24-month period Coming into the Test he was already on three demerit points after running on the pitch during the Indore Test against New Zealand last year He accumulated another three points because he threw the ball at Sri Lankan batsman Dimuth Karunaratne “in a dangerous manner” This breached article 228 of the players’ code of conduct which concerns “throwing a ball (or any other item of cricket equipment such as a water bottle) at or near a Player Player Support Personnel Umpire Match Referee or any other third person in an inappropriate and/or dangerous manner during an International Match” How does the system work Implemented from October last year players will be slapped with demerits points if they breach the ICC’s code of conduct Punishments usually fines will remain for minor offences such as showing dissent and using obscene language But for offences like running on the pitch or any on-field altercations with players or throwing the ball in a dangerous manner or any inappropriate physical contact players will be given demerit points based on the gravity of the incident If they accumulate four or more demerit points within a 24-month period they will be converted into suspension points and the player will be banned Two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is whatever comes first for the player But if they pick up two demerit points before October 2018 the player will face the penalty of a two-Test/four-ODI/four-T20I suspension The catch is that even if you have served the ban the demerit points will be wiped off from the disciplinary record only after October 2018 This is apart from the fine Which are the previous instances South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada was the first player to be punished thus He incurred the first three points when he stumbled into Sri Lankan batsman Niroshan Dickwella at the non-striker’s end even after the latter had completed he single in an ODI in Cape Town Then in the first Test against England he was slapped with one point for an elaborate send-off to England batsman Ben Stokes Dickwella too was suspended for a couple of ODIs after he hoarded more demerit points for “showing dissent against the umpire” during a T20 match against Australia Why is the rule a little harsh on players For ages cricket has kept itself away from such hard-binding rules and regulations But the rather stifling diktat takes a certain charm out of the game Imagine a cricket field where players don’t stare at each other indulge in some lighthearted banter the accidental collision or even a batsman suppressing his frustration when he feels that he’s genuinely not out It becomes machine-like Moreover it can impact matches and series While India may not be affected by Jadeja’s suspension as they have already won the series South Africa were demoralised when Rabada was suspended though eventually they went on to win the Test Imagine this happening to an important player in the World Cup final or an Ashes decider How has the cricket world reacted to it Rabada’s suspension was blasted by several former players Kevin Pietersen never one to shy away from expressing his opinion sarcastically tweeted: “A DYING global Test game & the @ICC
