June 15th Rewa team got in contact to the chairman of Ishwar International Society (Delhi,) , the all this become possible because of Mr David Rewa (President of Society), Ishwar International Society who conducts corrective surgery in collaboration with KBH Austria, regarding the same Rewa met Chief Medical Officer and Medical Superintendent and District Commissioner, after which the officer kept an ethical committee meeting in which the committee passed a resolution that Rewa Society can use the O.T and they will also provide O.T team, all this formality took at least took 2 months to be finalized.


By August 19 the ethical committee passes the resolution finally, one of the reason why it took that long was that since the surgeons were from abroad there are many formalities like getting clearance from Medical Council of India and External Affairs Minister.

In Delhi the team had to take permission from Medical Council of India and External Affairs Minister to conduct the Surgery since the surgeons were from Austria.
