The demand is not fully satisfied by the infrastructure at this time, despite India having approximately 4,950 dialysis centres, most of which are private.

Practically all families of patients who require dialysis suffer a financial catastrophe as a result of the high cost of care. A dialysis program is deemed necessary both in terms of providing significant life-saving procedures and in terms of lowering patient poverty due to out-of-pocket expenses.
