Details :

Wing Commander Basu has been commanding the Medical Training Center since August 1969. After taking over the school, he introduced a number of changes in the training pattern by reorganizing classed, their composition, sequencing of instruction and grading the trainees receiving personal attention and instruction according to his need. This in turn has reduced the failure rate in the trade subjects to nil from 10-15% earlier. Wing Commander Basu has displayed organizing ability, determination and tact of a very high order in planning and implementing this scheme.

Besides performing his primary duties with distinction, Wing Commander Basu has willingly and efficiently carried out nonprofessional duties and has taken keen interest in the welfare activities of the Station.

Throughout his career Wing Commander Manikmohan Basu has rendered distinguished order. He is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal.
