According to the directives, Brar was also assigned the roles of director technical education, project director Educity, and extra secretary collaboration. Bhatti has been appointed additional secretary for higher education.

Brar, a 2011 batch officer, joined the Chandigarh administration on deputation in August 2015 and held the position of director, school education in UT. In 2021, he was released of his duties as director of school education and appointed chief general manager of Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Development Corporation Limited (CITCO).

Brar was removed of his position as CITCO again in March 2022 and returned to Punjab with other officials.
