He began his political career in 1988 as a member of the Indian National Congress, and served as the sarpanch of Kotharia gram panchayat. Between 1998 and 2000, Chauhan was Khamnor Pradhan. In 2000, he became Up-Zila Pramukh, stepping down in 2005.[4] Chauhan joined the Bharatiya Janata Party and faced C. P. Joshi in the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly election of 2008, winning by a single vote.[5] Chauhan represented Nathdwara until his death from cancer on 21 February 2018, at GBH American Hospital in Udaipur.[6][7] His funeral was held the same day.[8] Chauhan died less than a year before the next assembly elections, and, by law, his seat did not need to be filled via by-election.[9]
