Details :

Wing Commander Subramaniam Swaminathan is on the posted strength of Air Force Central Accounts Office since Mar 86 and is working as Officer in charge Electronic Data processing wing since Sep 86.

His professional acumen and bold initiative were irrefutably evinced when he accomplished, with stupendous speed and accuracy, the seemingly insurmountable task of implementing the IV Pay Commission Recommendations both for Officers and Airmen, through computer.

His magnum opus was the computerization of Personnel Occurrence Reports and Acquittance Rolls of the Airmen and NCs (E) which has led not only to speedier and complete actioning of these two inputs but also to the rational utilization of the existing manpower, With this, the Herculean task of computerizing 1.3 Lakh Pay Records of Airmen and NCs (E), became a reality and that too, much ahead of schedule.

His exemplary leadership and objective management have knit his team of young professionals into a winning combination. The availability of trained computer personnel from within, is the result of his foresight and futuristic plans.

For his extra ordinary and multifaceted contributions to the computerization of Pay Accounting and Provident Fund records in the Indian Air Force, and services of exceptional order, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Subramaniam Swaminathan.
