      <Abstract>Objective: To objective was to study the frequency of ABO and Rh (D) blood groups and its correlation to transfusion transmitted infections (TTI) among the blood donors who donated at Vinayaka Mission’s Kirupananda Variyar blood bank, Salem, Tamilnadu. Materials and Methods : Details about blood grouping and TTI positivity of a total of 17678 potential blood donors were collected from the records of transfusion medicine department of our institution for 3 years period between July 2011 and June 2014. Results: Blood group ‘B’ had the highest incidence and 93.33% of the blood groups tested were Rh positive. ‘A’ blood group with Rh positivity was more commonly associated with TTI. Conclusion : The most common blood group tested in our blood bank was ‘B positive’, whereas TTI was common in the ‘A positive’ blood donors.</Abstract>
