This portal provides facility for searching missing children and matching of missing children with the recovered/found children could also be done based on pre-defined parameters such as name, age, parents details of date of missing etc.

There are two modules on TrackChild; one is used by the Police to upload the information of a missing child after registering FIR and second module used by Child Welfare Committees (CWCs), Juvenile Justice Boards (JJBs), staff of the Child Care Institutions (CCIs) or entering information of a recovered/ found child. A revised and user friendly version i.e. 2.0 TrackChild was launched for better connectivity and with enhanced features such as Mobile Application during 2015-16.
