In 2019, the government decided to distance itself from the ICCW after they had been put under the scanner by the Delhi high court over financial integrity. Every year, the NGO Indian council for child welfare give out awards during Republic day. The Women and Child Development Ministry also filed a FIR for alleged mishandling of funds.
