|Details :|| |
Group Captain Colville de Souza was commissioned on 23 Jun 68. He was appointed as Chief Administrative Officer of Air Force Station Kalaikunda on 02 Nov 92. On taking over he faced the challenge of powerful civilian employees/MES workers' lobby, working against the service interests. He studied the problem thoroughly and by his deft handling he not only avoided strikes but also effectively curbed the indiscipline of the employees, thus increasing the output.
Group Captain C de Souza launched a door to door campaign in the domestic area including class IV civilians, coaxing them to work towards maintaining a clean and healthy living environment. He has markedly improved the buildings, maintained clean drainages and gave a total face lift to the entire station area. In addition parks, gardens and orchards were planned to beautify the campus.
The station was inspected once by the Chief of Air Staff, United States Air Force and twice by the Chief of Air Staff, Indian Air Force and the outlook of the Station was highly praised by the inspecting officers.
For exceptional devotion to duty, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain C de Souza.
