Police and rights groups working for children will also be able to feed relevant data on to the portal directly, officials said.

According to the National Crime Research Bureau (NCRB), a child goes missing every one minute in the country and less than 25% make it back to their parents and family.

'By the time the stake holders and agencies like police get into action, the child is beyond tracking,' an official told IANS, adding the application will aid in tracking missing children.
