WO Indu Bhushan Mishra 682195 ORUnit : No.23 Squadron  Award Date 26 Jan 08 Announced 26 Jan 08
Details :

682195 Warrant Officer Indu Bhushan Mishra Elect/Fit has been on the posted strength of front line Sqn since 09 Jul 05 and is presently working as i/c Electrical Section as well as the i/c Flight line in DSS.

He is a dedicated, highly skilled and a very pro-active professional with excellent supervisory capabilities. He leads from the front, is highly motivational to others and is ever ready to take the first step in any Sqn activity. An example of his ingenuity and never say die attitude is his indigenous fabrication of the Russian UPP for BISON aircraft for the first time in the IAF. As the Sqn was an unplanned squadron for induction of BISON aircraft, this tester was not available in IAF because of which it was not initially allotted to this unit. This tester was critically required by the unit as it is regularly used for checking the parameters of electrical systems, like phase voltages and frequency during ground runs. WO IB Mishra kept service above self, took initiative and worked beyond the normal call of duty to get the tester fabricated through local resources. The cost of the original tester is reportedly Rs. 6 lakhs. However, WO IB Mishra while working with limited resources, managed to produce the same tester in Rs. 1550 only, thus saving precious service money.

Additionally, he has been instrumental in modifying the Aircraft starting trolley for checks on KOPYO radar system of BISON aircraft and also in fabricating bomb simulator plugs for simulation of bombs in air. He has displayed a high sense of responsibility in ensuring a safe and efficient working environment as WO i/c Flt Line in DSS and also while assisting in rectifying complicated aircraft snags. He is always very cheerful and thus ensures a very amiable and positive atmosphere among the technicians.

For his distinguished service of high order, hard work, dedication, self motivation, innovativeness and positive attitude, Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Warrant Officer Indu Bhushan Mishra.
