Hi,

Also I need to check the directory path exist in the local drive.
These directory path are mentioned in the Primary.csv file under the column Dir.

Primary.csv
Dir,File1,File2
India/Test/Folder1,Test.csv,Test_cntl,txt
US/Test/Folder2,Test2.csv,Test2_cntl,txt
Australia/Folder3,Sample.csv,Sample_cntl,txt


Thanks for your help!

Try this

IFS=","
sed -n '2,$ p' Primary.csv|while read line
do
set $line
dir=$1
if [ -d $dir ]
then
shift 1
for fname in $*
do
echo $dir/$fname
done
else
echo "Directory $dir doesn't exist"
fi
done
