Chauhan had joined the Comptroller's office in 2015 as the Director of Community Affairs, South and East Asia and has served as senior advisor to the Comptroller since early 2017.

The statement said that minority communities are an integral part of the fabric of Nassau County and the Comptroller's Office has been a driving force in advocating for increased business opportunities for Minority and Women Owned Enterprises (MWBEs), and veterans to meet the county's goals.
It, however, underlined the need to do more for the rights of the minority communities.

In the press release, Maragos lauded Dilip Chauhan's efforts in assisting members of the minority communities to better navigate local government and helping resolve governmental issues faced by minority constituents.

Chauhan, an active member of the Indian community in the New York area, said in the release he was honoured to be appointed to the position of Deputy Comptroller and would continue to support the Comptroller's efforts to provide equal opportunity for minority and women owned enterprises to do business with Nassau County.
