Details :

Wing Commander Jayaram Nilkanth Jatar has been commanding a squadron since August 1967. His zeal and untiring efforts has led to an increase in the monthly flying hours and a substantial reduction in the accident/ incident rate. The Squadron has also won the Command Gunnery Trophy for 1969. During his command, the Squadron was called upon to operate a number of detachments. He successfully met these commitments. He has also successfully devised a light weight starting system to enhance the squadron's mobility besides ways to improve the serviceability of the ground equipment. He was the top scorer during 1969 Command Gunnery Meet. Once when one aircraft had force landed at a landing ground and its retrieval became a problem due to the surrounding obstructions and the uneven surface of the runway area he, with his exceptional airmanship, was able to execute a take-off and bring the aircraft safely to the base.

Throughout, Wing Commander Jayaram Nilkanth Jatar displayed courage, devotion to duty and exceptional airmanship.
