Health Ministry notifies new protocol for post-mortem procedure


  • As per the new protocol, post-mortem can now be performed after sunset in hospitals having adequate infrastructure. 
  • This move will promote organ donation and transplant.
  • Video recording of post-mortem will be done for all post-mortem conducted in the night to rule out any suspicion. 
  • However, cases under categories such as homicide, suicide, rape, decomposed bodies, suspected foul play should not be subjected for post-mortem during night unless there is a law and order situation.
