Details :

Group Captain Rajinder Kumar Mohan (12489) Lgs has been the Commanding Officer of an Equipment Depot since 11 March 1996.

The organisational set-up of the Depot was based on a manual and centralised pattern of provisioning. Storage and accounting could not cope with heavy commitments of the Base Repair Depots. It was a cause of concern since two projects for overhaul of a transport aircraft and aeroengines for a fighter aircraft were in progress. A third project for overhaul of aircraft support vehicles of Russian origin was also planned to be started from April 96.

Group Captain RK Mohan took command of the Depot at this critical juncture. He took no time in making a realistic and correct assessment of the situation and started the work to achieve the objective of timely completion of the projects, computerisation of the inventory and revision of the organisation as well as storage plan to make it more responsible to the needs of production staff at the Base Repair Depots. An exercise to create space in close proximity of the workshops was taken up. Approximately 15,000 types of spares/unservicable machinery were surveyed and disposed off after retrieval of all serviceable components, thus making 10,000 sq mtrs storage space, valued at approximately Rs 6 crores available for storage of current equipment. A new concept of Logistics Support Officer for each production line was introduced, which not only ensured total accountability for efficient support to the production line but also brought in tremendous involvement of Logistics personnel with the production, bridging the gap between production and Logistics Staff. Group Captain Mohan also accomplished computerisation of inventory and a net saving of approximately 30% amounting to Rs. 1 Crore, was achieved during the years 1996-97 and 1997-98, as compared to the previous year.

For an excellent sense of professionalism and management of both human and material resources, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain RK Mohan.
