Organ transplant scams will force patients to doubt doctors
The medical profession is considered to be noble. Doctors have always been given respect because they save lives and solve health problems of the public.
 However, instead of saving lives, what if doctors took away lives and put people’s lives in danger? If doctors started behaving like mafia, there is no reason for patients to trust doctors. This is what Indian doctors are facing today. 
Organ transplant scams have become so common in India that people have lost trust in doctors. Patients are afraid that if they go into a doctor’s clinic looking for a cure, they might end up with more problems, including the loss of one of their vital organs.
Although majority of the doctors in India are not involved in such scams, a small number is sufficient to bring shame to the entire profession. There is a high demand for organs, including kidneys and lungs.
According to Anoop Mishra, director for the Centre of Diabetes at the Fortis Hospital, “Anything which has a great demand has a black market”. Since there is a demand for organs, and hospitals are unable to supply them, people turn to illegal sources to meet that demand. 
In fact, Indians are even going to Pakistan to get transplants because of the lack of suitable donors in India. In India, about 200,000 people are diagnosed with renal failure; however, less than 3,000 transplants are carried out every year. So, where do the other 197,000 people go? To crook doctors who are desperate to make money out of their patients.
In March 2013, the CBI convicted and sentenced five people (two doctors) in a kidney scam that was busted in 2008 in Gurgaon. According to the CBI, the doctors would lure poor and unemployed people on the pretext of offering them jobs and later, they would remove their kidneys without their consent. Such cases force patients to doubt even the good doctors. And with the rise in the demand for organs, people will think twice before visiting a doctor.
Doctors have all the necessary equipment and medicines to make a patient unconscious and remove his organs. Since licensed and registered doctors are also involved in such scams, it is difficult to differentiate a good doctor from a crook.
With an increase in the number of organ transplant scams in India, people have become cautious and wary about those in the medical profession. 
The public cannot be blamed for the growing distrust. Unless the government changes the law and enables registered hospitals to carry out more transplants, we will continue to witness more organ transplant scams in the country. This will eventually lead to the growing distrust between patients and doctors.
