If required, a vehicle can be sent to bring the dead body to the hospital. The body must be brought to the hospital within six hours of death. If 12 hours have passed after the death of the person or if the body has a foul smell, it will not be accepted. Bodies which will require a post mortem and bodies which do not have a death certificate by a qualified doctor (MBBS) will not be accepted.

The deceased’s immediate next of kin – husband, wife or one child – gets free consultation at Vyedhi Hospital and at Mallya Hospital for which a separate card/certificate is issued.
