Details :

Air Commodore Krishna Mahesh Agerwala has been the Senor Air and Admin. Staff Officer and the Deputy Commander at Headquarters Maintenance Command since June, 1963. Throughout his service career, he has more than ably handled a wide variety of key appointments. In the discharge of his duties he has emerged as an administrator of exceptional ability and caliber.

During the period of his tenure, Maintenance Command had to face enormous problems associated with the rapid expansion of the Indian Air Force. As the senior Air and Admin Staff Officer of the Command, Air Commodore Agerwala was responsible for bringing about the administrative coordination necessary for solving the maintenance problems of the Air Force formations and units throughout the country. With his unparalleled devotion to duty, utmost patience and untiring zeal he accomplished this task, thereby maintaining to a considerable degree, the fitness for war of the Air Force formations and units.

His achievement in the administrative field during this period was all the more conspi cuous when he had to work under the most adverse circumstances imaginable. With cool, calculated, almost fanatic determination, lea dership and initiative of the most exceptional order, he has been responsible for instilling a spirit of orderliness in various organizational functional aspects of the Command. His effort is all the more creditable because he accomplished this task in spite of and without regard for his personal health, which caused him and his superiors' considerable concern.

Air Commodore Agerwala's overall performance over a prolonged period of time, as an administrator, leader of men, organizer and above all, an officer fired with the one and only ambition to give off his very best to the Air Force under all situations will, for ever, remain a shining example of service of the most exceptional order.
