In Nov 99, DASI assessed it as "average plus" in all three disciplines i.e. Operations, Maintenance and Administration. The Unit has been fielded again for the best ADDC in the Air Force competition. In Mar 2000, Gp Capt Chauhan was tasked to establish a model camp for mobile units and prepare a SOP for the same.

Gp Capt Chauhan took over the command of Air Force Station Jaisalmer on 19 Nov 01. Normally the Station does not have any flying Sqn. However, due to Op Parkaram the Station supported and operated nearly three Sqns of fighter ac and several other radar units for over a year. Extended and extensive flying operations were undertaken by the Station without any accidents/ incidents. Inspite of adverse weather conditions due to high temperature and sandy environment, the Station under the able guidance of Gp Capt Chauhan provided excellent support and facilities to all the visiting Sqns. A newly raised Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Sqn was also inducted into the base on a permanent basis, which was smoothly deployed and oeprationalised. The Pokhran range which is also under the control of the Station was continuously extensively utilized by a large number of Sqns of the IAF for armament work. Many live trials were undertaken by Aircraft System Testing Establishment (ASTE) and specialized Sqns for which the Station provided timely technical support. Soon after Op Parakram, Directorate of Air Staff Inspection team visited the Station and graded it 'Average Plus' in all the three facets namely operations, administration and maintenance.
Under the leadership and personal involvement of Gp Capt Chauhan the Station has done exceedingly well in al the command level exercises and has met all tasks and goals. All out efforts have been made to keep the Station clean and improve the quality of life of personnel. There has been an all around improvement and the motivation level and the discipline of the personnel has always remained high.
Group Captain Jasvinder Chauhan VSM has, thus, rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
