Details :

Group Captain Jayanta Kumar De (12250) Med was commissioned on 21 Nov 1969. After serving in various Air Force units, he was selected to undergo specialisation in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, which he completed with Flying colours in 1977. He has served in almost all Air Force Hospitals as a Gynaecologist of repute. Recognising his professional competence, he was handpicked to become a reader in the Deptt. of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the prestigious Armed Forces Medical College, Pune from 1989 to 1994. For his devotion to duty and professional commitment, he was awarded Commendation by the CAS in 1980 and by AOC-in-C, TC IAF in l996.

Group Captain De was posted to CHAFB in Oct 94, where as Head of Deptt. of Gynaecology, he spearheaded modernisation of antenatal gynaecological care by incorporating new equipments and technique. With single-minded determination he persued the setting up of fertility clinic and was responsible for bringing joy into the life of many hitherto childless parents. This achievement was attained with the available resources, which is creditable considering the cost involved in starting and running fertility clinics. Being a dedicated teacher he headed the Academic and Training Deptt of CHAFB, Bangalore and due to his relentless persuasion of the Karnataka University authorities, recognition for post-graduate training to CHAFB was restored. This effort has had far reaching benefits and has paid rich dividends by the way of training many specialists of all discipline for the Armed Forces. Despite many odds he has succeeded in delivering excellent professional gynaecological care to his patients, which has made him as one of the most sought-after gynecologists in the Armed Force today.

For his various meritorious achievements that have resulted in far reaching benefits to many defence personnel and their families and for distinguished service of a high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain Jayanta Kumar De.
