The NGO was inspected  by the home ministry's controller of accounts in 2012 in accordance with the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, covering the period from 2005-06 to 2011-12.

According to the report : “In several cases, payments are not supported with relevant documents and are routed through Manish Sisodia in cash”.
