Details :

Flight Lieutenant Dinesh Chandra Kumaria is a UK trained pilot who has been on the posted strength of an operational squadron since 01 Sep 79. When he initially joined the Squadron there were only six UK trained pilots on whom fell the mantle of responsibility to organise and lay the infrastructure of the first Jaguar Squadron. Flt Lt Kumaria proved himself equal to the task. He coped with all demands made of him, volunteered for additional jobs and accomplished these well within specified time frames to the best of his ability.

With his continuous hard work on the ground and in the air, Flt Lt Kumaria soon established himself as a dependable and mature officer. He made rapid strides and was selected to undergo Qualified Weapons Instructor course in UK. With his usual dedication, he commenced studying for the course as soon as his name was recommended. On the course itself, his customary application and methodical approach paid dividends. He stood first and his aggregate marks has set a record that is unlikely to be broken in the near future.

For his dedicated attitude, professional .competence and high standards, the President is pleased to award VAYU SENA MEDAL to Fight Lieutenant Dinesh Chandra Kumaria.
