- You must have doctor’s prescription

Depending upon blood component it may take 45 minutes. You have to pay service charge as per the Govt rate list. Rates may change without any updating on website. Blood can be sometimes in short supply and it is better to check with cross match lab before you visit with blood sample.
In a country where blood is very scarce resource and there are not enough voluntary blood donors, IVBB made it very simple to get blood. This is no wonder when you believe in voluntary non-remunerated blood donations. When you need blood, you call IVBB and book the needed component. If it is available it is given to you without asking for replacement at predefined testing charges. If you are a blood donor of IVBB or Drive Organiser, you can mention that while placing request. You should however send the person with Doctor’s prescription for specific component and blood sample of patient for cross match. Thus, blood banking simplified.
