Have to create multiple Parent folders with permissions and In side of Each Parent folders need to create 04 Sub folders. In this subfolders 02 Folders Inheritance should be disabled

I found the below script it will create the Parent folders with Permission mentioned in the CSV. Please help me to create subfolders inside each Parent folders with Modify Permission  level

#$path = "\\localhost\Share\"
$csvFile = "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\create.csv"

$create = Import-CSV $csvFile

function DoPermissions
    param( $permissionGroup, $folder, $level)
    $toAdd = $permissionGroup -split ";"
    Write-Host $folder
    foreach ($item in $toAdd)
        $acl = (Get-Item $folder).GetAccessControl('Access')
        $ar = New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule($item, $level, 'ContainerInherit,ObjectInherit','None','Allow')
        Set-ACL -path $folder -AclObject $acl

foreach ($folder in $create)
    $fullPath = $folder.folder #$path + $folder.folder
    if (!(Test-Path $fullPath)) {New-Item -ItemType Directory -Path $fullPath}

    if ($folder.full_control) {DoPermissions $folder.full_control $fullPath "FullControl"}
    if ($folder.modify) {DoPermissions $folder.modify $fullPath "Modify"}
    if ($folder.read_execute) {DoPermissions $folder.read_execute $fullPath "ExecuteFile"}
    if ($folder.list_folder_content) {DoPermissions $folder.list_folder_content $fullPath "ListDirectory"}
    if ($ {DoPermissions $ $fullPath "ReadData"}
