wix msi Repair not installing new version

I use the following condition to support upgrade in my msi
 <Property Id='PREVIOUSVERSIONSINSTALLED' Secure='yes' />
    <Upgrade Id='$(var.ProductUpgradeCode)'>
      <UpgradeVersion Minimum=''
                      IncludeMaximum='no' />
This msi is chained in a custom bootstrapper bundle.

In my custom UI I enable repair button if the already installed version of the msi is same as current version. The problem I am facing is repair is only uninstalling the already installed package. It does not install the package again. For testing repair I deleted few of the installed files from the install location of the package and then run in repair mode.

Here is the extract from bootstrapper log.
state: Present, default requested: Absent, ba requested: Absent, execute: None, rollback: None, cache: No, uncache: No, dependency: Register

Am I missing any properties to support Repair in my msi. I have to support major and minor upgrade of the msi also. Upgrade is working as expected. Repair only uninstalls the msi. Does not install it again.
