    @Amandeep Dua, Thanks for posting in Q&A. In Fact, DEM enrollment is mainly used for the devices are good for point-of-sale or utility apps, but not for users who need to access email or company resources.

    For your situation, windows device can choose other enrollment method like:

    Automatic enrollment via MDM: Joins the device with Azure Active Directory and enables users to sign in to Windows with their Azure AD credentials. If Auto Enrollment is enabled, the device is automatically enrolled in Intune.

    Windows Autopilot: Set up and pre-configure new devices, getting them ready for productive use
