    @Pradeep Joshi,Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    From your description, I know that you want to block USB pen drive and other storage devices but allow some specific USB devices.

    Based on my research, you can restrict USB devices and allow specific USB devices using Administrative Templates via Intune.

    Here is a link with detailed information you can refer.

    Please try above information. If there is any update, feel free to let me know.
