A remarkable achievement of Group Captain Krishan Murthy Konduri was in obtaining the Government sanction to exempt the death benefits, payable to Army, Navy and Air Force Group Insurance Schemes, from the Estate Duty.

With a verve and zeal which accepts nothing as impossible, Gp Capt KK Murthy has done yeoman service not only to the Air Force as an Accountant Officer but also to all the three Defence Services as Director of Air Force Group Insurance Scheme. His high professional competence, unflagging enthusiasm, total dedication to service and unparalleled achievements have been a source of inspiration for all.
