Details :

Squadron Leader Sanajy Seth (18162) Accts was commissioned in IAF on 06 Dec 1985. In 15 years of service he has served with distinction not only as a professional accounts officer but also as an administrator, particularly in the field of security. He has served at a number of field Units including Leh, Thoise, Udhampur, and Equipment Depot (ED) and an Air Stores Park (ASP). Presently he is posted at Air HQs as Staff Officer to the Chief of Air Staff.

As a young officer on his first posting to Leh, Sqn Ldr Seth was called upon to undertake additional task of managing the logistics and security operations during Exercise Brass Tacks, which included joint operation with Army. Despite being relatively inexperienced he successfully completed all the given tasks with extra ordinary organisational ability, tenacity and hard work. While posted at HQ AOC J&K, he once again proved his worth as a member of the security review board for the entire J&K Sector. As a professional accounts officer he was instrumental in streamlining the procedures leading to considerable financial savings to the IAF during his tenure at an Equipment Depot.

At the CAS secretariat, Sqn Ldr Sanjay Seth kept service requirements above his own and executed the task assigned to him in an extremely professional manner. The challenge of heavy pressure of work and the rigid time frames necessary to meet them was willingly accepted by the officer who put in long working hours to ensure their successful completion. His work output has been of the highest quality and has met the stringent demand of excellence and finesse expected of the officer by the CAS.

For his professional competence, unswerving dedication to duty and distinguis hed service, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Squadron Leader Sanjay Seth.
