In December 1961, the Republic of India undertook military action to evict the Portugese rulers out of the enclaves of Goa, Diu and Daman. This involved tri-service operations with the Army, Navy and the Air Force acting against the Portugese troops. The "war" was over in three days- resulting in the liberation of the Portugese enclaves. It also bought in a diplomatic freeze between the two nations which thawed only in 1974.
This section features articles on the Indian Air Force Operations. Some of them penned by the veterans who were there - along with some exclusive photographs from those days.
