Details :

Air Vice Marshal Jayaraj Henry Mandody was commissioned in the Logistics Branch on 16 December, 1961. Whilst being the Chief Logistic Officer at an Equipment Depot (ED), he performed creditably and was awarded VSM in 1988. He has held the appointments of Senior Logistics Officer at two major bases, Deputy Command Logistic Officer at a command Headquarters, and Director of Maintenance Administration as well as Director of Stores at Air Headquarters. He was the first Air Force Officer to command the Embarkation Headquarters at Calcutta, an army formation.

He was appointed the Air Officer Logistics Management (AOLM) at Maintenance Command on 01 November 1993. Under his direction, identification of indigenously available spares, timely build up of stocks and obtaining supplies from HAL held IAF Stores resulted in an all round enhancement of spares availability. Rationalisation of spares through identification of commonality and alternative usage of dormant inventory was also spearheaded by him. Further, he personally supervised special reviews of Mirage and Dornier Weapon Systems by way of specific identification of requirements and laying down of revised ARS (Automatic Replenishment System) scales. To 'reach out and supply', the entire Integrated Transportation System was rejuvenated. Intensive and timely support to operational units was thus provided by the Air Stores Parks through increase in the range of supplies and equitable distribution of short supply items.

Air Vice Marshal Jayaraj Henry Mandody VSM has, thus, rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
