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.

    Al Jazeera's Karishma Vyas reports from New Delhi.
