Below script create sub folders and I Need to  disable inheritance for Foldera and folderb and Change the permissions from particular security Group from Modify to Read For other folders no changes needed

For Foldera and Folderb ACL should be Read Permission
and for rest of the folders Modify Permission

$root = "C:\Users\a.narasimha.s\Desktop\foldertest1"

ForEach ($dir in (Get-ChildItem -Path "$root\*\" | ?{$_.PSIsContainer} | Select -Expand Name)){

  New-Item -Path "$dir\folder1" -ItemType Directory | Out-Null
  New-Item -Path "$dir\folder2" -ItemType Directory | Out-Null
  New-Item -Path "$dir\1" -ItemType Directory | Out-Null
  New-Item -Path "$dir\2" -ItemType Directory | Out-Null
