Details :

As Officer Commanding an Air Force Unit, Wing Commander Ranjit Kumar Kukar has displayed great initiative, organising ability and resourcefulness in maintaining a very high standard of serviceability of his Squadron. He has borne the responsibility of training over 100 pilots on the strength of the Squadron and at the same time has run three courier services per week. This he has ensured notwithstanding the fact that the Squadron had limited resources and had no established Station for administrative support Despite these handicaps, under his able guidance, there has been all round improvement in the operational status of the Squadron. A large number of pilots and navigators have qualified for both day and night operations including paratrooping and this has enabled the Squadron to make available a number of categorised pilots and navigators also to other Squadrons.

Throughout, Wing Commander Ranjit Kumar Kukar displayed initiative, organising ability and resourcefulness.
