The case of the missing of a small children is rampant in our country resulting out of the child trafficking and child labour. With the frequency of almost 11 children vanishing every hour in our country the government is planning to take the strict action by rolling out the online platform for the people whose kin is missing. On this online website people can directly report, track and upload the information of a missing child from June 2, 2015.

This state of an art web portal will be launched by the Women and Child Development Ministry of India. It will not just serve the platform for the people report a missing child will also track the efforts towards the recovery of the same. The website,, will answer all queries as to what action is to be taken when a child goes missing.

The joint efforts of the WCD ministry along with the Ministry and the Department of Electronics and Information Technology will implement the three steps website which will include the following sections for the ….. 1. My Child is Missing, 2. I have sighted a Child and 3. Search a Missing Child. The website will also provide links to court orders wherein police have been mandated to register an FIR in the matter of a child gone missing and treat it as either abduction or trafficking unless it is proved otherwise in the investigation.


“There is always a lack of information as to what can be done when a person loses a child. Since police play a very important role, the website will assist them in taking better help of police,” said a ministry official. According to a report by Alliance for People’s Rights, a non-governmental organization, on an average 18 children go missing in the national capital every day and four of them are never traced. The report said that parents of missing children often allege that authorities are not doing enough to help them and check such cases.

That looks to be a very huge number as yearly it becomes 6570 children missing alone from the national capital of India. The proper implementation and law enforcement the situation will improve the situation and child trafficking will be vanished from India instead of children.
