Air Cmde Suresh Chandra Vohra was commissioned on 10 Nov 62 in the Logistics Branch of the Air Force.
Whilst being the Chief Logistics Officer at No 25 ED, a number of new weapon systems were inducted in IAF for which No 25 ED was designated as the stock-holding depot. Air Cmde Vohra, within existing resources of the ED created necessary storage space and infrastructure to absorb the additional inventory which accounted for a saving of Rs. 1.6 crores approximately. He retrieved 407 time barred loans valued at Rs. 24 crores. Thereafter he commanded 27 ED creditably.
Air Cmde Vohra after taking over Command of 24 ED, started the task of computerisation of inventory right from day one. Though hardware was yet to be received, one available PC XT and printer were utilised to start computerisation of Jaguar inventory, which constitutes 25% of the Depot holdings and is valued at over Rs. 700 crores. The task was completed in the short period of four months. This was achieved entirely within the existing resources.
For distinguished service of high order, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Air Cmdr SC Vohra.
