A kidney transplant operation is scheduled for tomorrow and all formalities for a donor kidney have been completed.

A committee of 10 doctors has been formed to look into the operation and care. The Minister was admitted to the VVIP ward in the cardio-neuro building.

The finance minister has been suffering from a kidney ailment and hasn't returned to office since Monday. He has not even taken oath of office after being re-elected to the Rajya Sabha.

Confirming his medical condition, Jaitley on Thursday tweeted stating that he was being treated for kidney-related problems and certain infections.

"I am, therefore, currently working from a controlled environment at home. The future course of treatment would be determined by the doctors treating me," he said.

Jaitley was brought to the hospital for "finishing formalities for a donor kidney" ahead of the surgery.

In September 2014 Jaitely underwent a gastric bypass surgery for diabetes management in a private hospital.
