Details :

Air Commodore Sushil Kumar Jha (112490) was commissioned on 26 December 1970 in the Logistics branch of the Indian Air Force. During his 33 years of distinguished service, he has held various appointments including that of Commanding Officer of an Equipment Depot, Senior Logistics Officer of a premier fighter base, Commanding Officer of an Air Stores Park, Command Logistics Management Officer (CLMO) of an operational command. He is a graduate of College of Management. He was commended by AOC-in-C Maintenance Command in 1986 and by the CAS in 1991. Presently, he is Air Officer Commanding of an equipment depot since 01 Oct 2002.

As CLMO, Air Commodore Jha was instrumental in providing prompt and effective logistics services to Air Force Station, Bhuj during earthquake in January 2001. During Op Parakarm, he meticulously planned and provided effective logistics support to the operational units.

As the Air Officer Commanding of the largest Equipment Depot of the IAF, Air Commodore Jha has followed a dynamic and result oriented approach to maximize demand satisfaction, identification of non moving stores and vigorously pursue their disposal. To this end, non moving stores worth Rs 8 Crores have been identified and disposed of in the last two years. His emphasis is on correct and accurate PR/SR submission which has not only brought about a saving of Rs. 29 Crores, but would also avoid future accumulation of non-moving stores. His initiative on conduct of Provisioning Capsule Courses for Technical and Logistics Officers has highlighted the finer nuances of provisioning, coupled with correct applic-ation of financial regulation in an effective manner. Due to his sincere efforts and effective liaison, the Govt of Maharashtra has sanctioned a sum of Rs. 14 lakhs for a Water Harvesting Project in the station.

Air Commodore Jha has displayed all round ability to upgrade knowledge, improve efficiency and professionalism on the one hand as also vastly upgrade the quality of life of all personnel on the other. As a result the Depot was declared Best Depot by HQ MC on 18 December 2003

Air Commodore Sushil Kumar Jha has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
