Squadron Leader Thittanimuttam Krishnaswamy Seshachari was commissioned in the Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) Branch of the Indian Air Force in April, 1955. During the operations against Pakistan in December, 1971, Squadron Leader Thittanimuttam Krishnaswamy Seshachari was serving as the Senior Armament Officer of an Operational Wing. He took over control of Squadron Armament work in addition to his normal duties. It was lately due to him that the Squadron was able to achieve a high rate of success in the operational sorties. He reduced the turn­round time of aircraft to a considerable extent and by intelligent analysis the bomb hang ups were reduced to virtually zero. He made significant contributions towards armament modifications and trials for carriage and launching of special stores from aircraft and thus considerably improved the operational capability of the Bomber aircraft.

Throughout, Squadron Leader Thittanimuttam Krishnaswamy Seshachari displayed professional skill, organising ability and devotion to duty.
