ControversiesRow over his appointment as an advisor to the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi: In April 2018, Raghav Chadha's appointment as an advisor to the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, was retrospectively terminated by the then Union Minister of Home Affairs, Rajnath Singh. Raghav was among the nine advisers whose appointments were cancelled. In a letter to the Ministry, Mr. Chadha said that he was appointed to the post from January 15 to March 31 in 2016 to assist Sisodia in the preparation of the 2016-17 Budget. He also said that he had returned Rs. 2.50 that he took as the salary during his 75-day stint as the advisor to Manish Sisodia. He further said,

I accept my retrospective sacking from the post I held for 75 days two years ago." [5]Business Standard

Delhi liquor policy case: On 2 May 2023, he was named in the ED's second supplementary chargesheet in the Delhi liquor policy case. According to Manish Sisodia's former secretary, C Arvind, Raghav Chadha attended a meeting related to the Delhi liquor policy held at the former deputy Chief Minister's residence. Arvind also told the agency that Punjab Excise Commissioner Varun Roojam, Vijay Nair, an accused in the case, and other officers from the Punjab Excise Directorate also attended the alleged meeting.

Rajya Sabha Suspension: On 11 August 2023, Raghav Chadha faced suspension from the Rajya Sabha over accusations of forging signatures of four MPs namely Sasmit Patra, S Phangnon Konyak, M Thambidurai, and Narhari Amin related to a motion on the Delhi Services Bill. They asserted that Chadha included them in a House panel without their consent. The motion for Chadha's suspension was put forth by Rajya Sabha House Leader, Piyush Goyal, effective until the Privilege Committee's findings are finalized. In response to the allegations and suspension, Chadha argued that only MPs' names were suggested for the panel, and those uninterested could opt out. He further questioned the possibility of forgery when no signatures were taken. [7]NDTV Raghav Chadha, in an interview, said,

Whenever a controversial bill comes to the House and a member wants this bill to be discussed at length before a vote, he recommends sending it a select committee. Names of MPs are proposed for this panel. Those who do not wish to be part of the committee can withdraw their names. When there is no signature involved, how can it be forged?"

On 4 December 2023, Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar revoked Raghav Chadha's suspension based on a motion moved by BJP MP G. V. L. Narasimha Rao. [8]NDTV

    I’m a CA, but in the last few years, I’ve put my personal work on autopilot. The time I have for my work, for my personal life, is almost negligible with the kind of work we’re doing. I still have a few friends who I hang out with, on and off. They’re obviously surprised to see me doing this. I’m the only person who’s joined politics after sacrificing a career. I had an offer from a multi-national corporate advisory company, running into six-seven figures, but I refused it.”
