Jaitley was re-elected as an MP from Uttar Pradesh in recent Rajya Sabha elections but could not take part in the oath-taking ceremony due to illness.
The finance minister was suffering from a kidney disease and was being advised by the doctors to stay indoors and avoid going out in public for fear of infection.
The finance minister is scheduled to undergo a kidney transplant operation at the hospital’s Cardio-Neuro Tower. He has already completed official formalities with the donor for the kidney transplant.
The transplant would be carried out by Sandeep Guleria, a specialist from Apollo Hospitals and brother of AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria.
