India allows children to open bank accounts

A new directive seeks to help Indian children save for their future and keep their cash safe.

    There are millions of children who live on the streets of India.

    A survey conducted by the London-based NGO, Save the Children, says nearly 70 percent of them have to fend for themselves.

    However, their money is often lost, stolen or taken away by parents.
