Details :

Group Captain Srinivasa Rao Chinni (12344) Lgs was commissioned on 27 Jun 1970 in the Logistics Branch of the IAF. He is currently commanding an Equipment Depot.

As an Inspector in Directorate of Maintenance Inspection (DMI), his study on Inventory Management of MiG-21 fleet resulted in reduced holding at operational units without affecting serviceability. It also generated utilisation of non-moving inventory, bringing savings in procurements and inventory carrying costs. At College of Defence Management (CDM), he excelled in teaching Operational Research and Project Management to Senior Defence Officers. His efforts in getting a memorandum signed with All India Management Association (AIMA) and Osmania University granting recognition and award of Postgraduate Degree is noteworthy and commendable. During Kargil operations, his meticulous planning and distribution management ensured smooth and effective logistics support to all dependent bases, which enabled the IAF to achieve its operational targets.

On taking over Command of 29 Equipment Depot, Gp Capt Chinni faced the challenge to support overhaul of 12 AN-32 aircraft (ac) as against 06 ac in the previous years' task. By foresight and timely procurement, he ensured achievement of 100% task. His co-ordinated procurement of indigenous spares worth Rs seven crores from vendors all over India resulted in saving of valuable foreign exchange. He also designed a software programme to monitor critical spares, which was effectively used to meet the unforeseen increase in overhaul of R-29 engines.

In 32 years of service Gp Capt Chinni with his deep commitment, leadership quality and professional knowledge, has been able to develop an enthusiastic work force capable of achieving results even in adverse circumstances.

For distinguished service of high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Gp Capt Srinivasa Rao Chinni.
