Agarwal’s new office is in the Governance Cell of the Punjab Secretariat. He aims to create impact at scale and works with various governments closely. 


Agarwal has been interested in politics since childhood and while pursuing his education he often interacted with politicians and undertook fieldwork. He worked through a career that fits into his larger scheme of striving for progress and positive change through politics. Before Punjab, Agarwal worked with the Government of Chattisgarh in transforming their land registration process.

As per an Indian Express report Agarwal is working on a good governance fellowship program, which is a unique collaboration between the Government of Punjab and the Indian School of Business (ISB) with the goal to drive social impact. Under this program over 50 fellows will be hired and placed across districts, municipal corporations, and departments of the Government of Punjab, and ISB being the knowledge partner will invest in their capacity development.
