After acquitting himself well in accounts assignments for three and a half years, he joined the Air Force legal set up in 1964.

Air Vice Marshal Arora took over as the Judge Advocate General (Air) on the 2nd July, 1990. At that time a large number of civil suits were pending in various courts. Through personal involvement, deep study of the cases and close liaison with Govt Counsels and civil authorities, he ensured that prompt and upto date briefing was given to the Govt. Counsels in each case. His personal presence at the hearings and the prompt advice to the Govt. Counsels led to favourable decisions in several cases.
The officer has the distinction of revising the Regulations for the Air Force. He has been instrumental in removing many ambiguities and inconsistencies and making administration of justice simpler for Air Force Officers.
Air Vice Marshal Jagdish Kumar Arora has, thus, rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
