Knowing about ABO and Rh blood group distribution among voluntary donors is important as it helps in better management of blood bank inventory. Current study was done to know the distribution of ABO, Rh blood groups and also the seroprevalance of transfusion transmitted infections in donors attending voluntary blood donation camps. This an observational cross sectional study conducted over a period of six months at a blood bank attached to a private medical college. There were 378 voluntary blood donors during this study period. Male donors constituted 87.6% (268) and females 12.4% (37). Predominant blood group was O positive 146 (38.6%), followed by B positive 110 (29.1%).
