Blood group distribution shows a wide geographical variation. It is important for running and planning blood banking services, in a setup, to know the distribution pattern in the place where these services are located and the population it caters to. We carried out a retrospective analysis of voluntary blood donations over the last six months at the Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute (GCRI) to understand the blood group distribution patterns prevailing in Gujarat. During the period from November 1995 to May 1996, a total of 5278 volunteers donated blood. Blood group B was found to be the commonest (35.5 percent) followed by O (32.5 percent), A (23.3 percent) and AV (8.8 percent), 5.8 percent of the total donors were Rhesus negative. A significant difference was observed in blood group distribution compared to earlier series from Gujarat and Southern Indian states, while difference was statistically not significant when compared with other Northern states.
