AVM Charan Das Guru Devasher 1867 F(P)Unit : EAC  Award Date 26 Jan 72 Announced 26 Jan 72
Details : AIR VICE MARSHAL CHARANDAS GURUDAS DEVASHER, (1867) F (P) : Air Vice Marshal Devasher took over his appointment [SASO, EAC HQ] at a time when the Command itself was undergoing a process of reorganisation and the relations with Pakistan were becoming strained. He was responsible for reformulating the Command's war plans, making them bold in concept, yet simple to execute. These plans were put into action on the morning of 4th, December 1971 when our Armed Force went into action to liberate Bangia Desh. So effective were the plans that, within a few hours, the Indian Air Force had achieved total supremacy in the skies of Bangia Desh. During the period of the war in Bangia Desh) from 4th to 16th December, 1971, he controlled and co-ordinated all air activity in that sector, including para, transport and helicopter operations. The success of these opera- tions owed much to his aggressive spirit, knowledge of the use of air .power and ability to change tactics to suit the situation. On the night of 11th December, 1971, on receipt of an intercepted enemy message, he concluded that the Pakistanis had been able to build an emergency air strip in the neighbourhood of Dacca, and would attempt to land transport aircraft on it. Accordingly, he ordered night patrols by fighter aircraft over Dacca. As deduced by him, an emergency air strip was spotted at Narsingdi and put out of action, thus preventing the clandestine entry and exit of war material and personnel from Bangia Desh by air. Through- out his career in the Air Force, and especially during the recent war with Pakistan, Air Vice Marshal Devasher rendered distinguished service of the most exceptional order.
