Details :

Wing Commander Chandra has been serving as Senior Training Officer of a Technical Training School since April 1960. After the outbreak of hostilities in October, 1961, the training flow had increased manifold while there was no corresponding increase in training aids and instructors. This called for great resourcefulness, ingenuity on the part of the staff and more so on the shoulders of Senior Training Officers.

Wg. Cdr. Chandra who was given this momentous task of increased training commitment set down his assignment with single minded devotion and formulated a comprehensive training programme to meet the increased commitment. During this period he introduced a number of new training aids which made the imparting of technical training easy and simpler.

Wg. Cdr. Chandra has rendered distinguished service of a high order.
