|Details :|| |
Group Captain Surinder Mohan Nagpal is held on the posted strength of a vital Base Repair Depot since 02 Mar 87. On 15 Apr 88, he was given the charge of the Engine Overhauling Branch of the Depot. During this period, he has been directly responsible for the production of TV2-117A and AI-20 series aeroengines at the Depot.
In Aug 89 due to involvement of Mi-8 fleet in operation 'Pawan', there was further increase in the demand for TV2-117A engines to keep the fleet operational. A stage came when Gp Capt SM Nagpal himself took direct control of the TV2-117A overhaul line as there was mass exodus of experienced technicians.
The Engineering Branch was also entrusted with the responsibility to establish the overhaul facilities for AI-20D series engines (of Sutluj Aircraft). He was able to undertake this additional task also despite innumerable constraints.
For his organizational and managerial capabilities, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Gp Capt Surinder Mohan Nagpal.
