Packer fails with UnauthorizedOperation on my office AWS, works fine on personal AWS account where i have full admin access

So i am getting UnauthorizedOperation: You are not authorized to perform this operation error. I am aware this is happening due to some restrictive policy, but i have checked and i have all the required policies access as per Packer documentation. Can someone point out the problem for me please. I am providing the entire script, error as well as the decoded error message. Your quick help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
