at large. It is called, ‘KhoyaPaya’ portal. This portal is in addition to all

The
portal will essentially serve as a central database of missing children that is
available to every citizen of India. People who have missing children can raise
a complaint, while if someone has sighted missing children can report it back
on the portal.

How does
it work: Firstly, users need to register on the portal, be it to raise a
complaint or to even browse through missing children database, users need to
give their mobile number (mandatory).

Once
the user has registered with the portal, they can directly login by entering
the OTP (One Time Password) sent to their mobile number. After logging in,
users can raise a missing child complaint through the given online forms given.
The form offers users to fill in complete details of the missing child.

If
users have logged into KhoyaPaya because they have sighted a child, or they have
some information of a missing child, they can provide the information by simply
filling the given form.

The
portal also provides a dashboard that gives you a graphical view of number of
total missing children and number of sightings of missing children that have
happened. The portal is humanmoderated. So, only legitimate reports will be
published online after verification.
