|Details :|| |
Wing Commander Sikander Piroshaw Malao was commissioned in the Air Force in Jun 60. A brilliant technical officer, he successfully completed Technical Staff Course and Senior Technical Management Course. Thereafter, he was appointed Chief Inspection Officer and Senior Proof Officer at the Equipment Depot. One of the singular achievements of Wg Cdr SP Malao has been the setting up of proof testing facilities of 30mm and 23mm ammunition of foreign origin for the first time in the Indian Air Force. All lots of such ammunitions were successfully proof tested at the Equipment Depot. Thus considerable quantities of amm unition which could not be issued to operating units for lack of proof-test facilities would now be put into circulation leading to considerable savings in foreign exchange.
Wg Cdr SP Malao, with his sound professional judgment and positive innovative thinking, has put up certain proposal to improve the efficient functioning of the Equipment Depot.
For having done pioneering work in Proof Range and rendering meritorious service the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Sikander Piroshaw Malao.
