             metatarsal but limited to toes (Patients with wet gangrene must undergo wound
             debridement / amputation before screening)

          -  Patients having infrapopliteal occlusive disease with rest pain and ischemic
             ulcer/necrosis, who are not eligible for or have failed traditional revascularization
             treatment as per the investigators judgment (No option patients)

          -  Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) ≤ 0.6 or ankle pressure ≤ 50 mm Hg or TcPO2 ≤ 40
             mmHg in the foot of the study limb

          -  Patients who are able to understand the requirements of the study, and willing to
             provide voluntary written informed consent and video consent, abide by the study
             requirements, and agree to return for required follow-up visits

        Exclusion Criteria:

          -  Patients with CLI indicated for major amputation during screening

          -  Atherosclerotic PAD

          -  Ulcers with exposure of tendon and/bone in the shin region

          -  Previous above transmetatarsal amputation in study limb

          -  Any Lumbar sympathectomy procedure performed less than 90 days prior to the screening

          -  Patients with gait disturbance for reasons other than CLI

          -  Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus (type 1 or type 2)

          -  Patients having left ventricular ejection fraction < 35%

          -  Patients suffering from clinically relevant peripheral neuropathy

          -  History of Stroke or myocardial infarction

          -  Patients who are contraindicated for MRA

          -  Patients with deep vein thrombosis in any limb

          -  Patients who have clinically serious and/or unstable inter-current infection, medical
             illnesses or conditions that are uncontrolled or whose control, in the opinion of the
             Investigator, may be jeopardized by participation in this study or by the
             complications of this therapy

          -  Documented terminal illness or cancer or any concomitant disease process with a life
             expectancy of <1 year

          -  Patients already enrolled in another investigational drug trial or completed within 3
             months or those who have participated in any stem cell clinical trial

          -  Patient with known hypersensitivity to the constituents of the IMP - dimethyl
             sulfoxide (DMSO) or human serum albumin (HSA)

          -  History of severe alcohol or drug abuse within 3 months of screening

          -  Hb% < 10 gm% for males, Hb% < 9 gm% for females, serum creatinine ≥ 2mg%, serum Total
             Bilirubin ≥2mg%

          -  Pregnant and lactating women

          -  Patients tested positive for HIV 1, HCV, HBV, CMV, RPR
