Air Vice Marshal Girish Krishanlal Desai Lgs. was commissioned in Air Force on 7th March 1953. He has held important assignments in the field, at Command and Air HQ. Right from the beginning he exhibited professional acumen of high order and devoted himself to his duties with single minded zeal.
As the Command Logistics Management Officer of an Operational Command, he ensured that timely logistic support is provided for smooth induction of a series of new weapon systems which were being introduced in IAF. Subsequently, as the Air Officer incharge of Logistics Management of the Maintenance Command, he directed an indepth study into the surplus holdings of the Depots to identify items which could be utilized. This study resulted in considerable savings.
On his taking over as Assistant Chief of Air Staff (Logistics), he devoted himself to the task of streamlining the procedures and policies connected with the inventory control of the Indian Air Force. With his penchant for the details and thoroughness, he guided the System Analysts in the maintenance of Information System to ensure that the data compiled are more meaningful for inventory management and brought about an awareness in the system managers to use computerized data as a powerful tool in the administration of the weapon system. Similarly, in the filed of audit objections, with his ability to get the essence of the problems, he guided the staff responsible to achieve target clearance of audit objections, some of which have been outstanding for a long time.
Air Vice Marshal Girish Krishanlal Desai has, thus, rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
