Details :

Group Captain Madan Mohan Gupta (12881) AE (M) was commissioned on 05 Jul 1971. During 31 years of service, he has held varied field and staff assignments, which include CEO of one of the largest operational bases of the IAF and CO of an independent Air Defence Ground Environment System (ADGES) unit. He is also a recipient of the General LENTAIGNE Medal during 47th course at DSSC, Wellington. Presently, he is on the posted strength of Air HQ since 18 Dec 2000 and has been functioning as Joint Director Engineering (Jaguar). After his training in British Aerospace (BAe), United Kingdom (UK) on Jaguar aircraft maintenance during 1979, he set up the mechanical and armament bays including Jaguar MCC in one of the operational bases of the IAF. Later, as Senior Technical Officer (STO) he single-handedly established full range of I/II line maintenance facilities during re-equipping of a Jaguar Sqn. As CO, Regional ADGES Maintenance Establishment (Wadsar) [RAME(W)] he directed the entire unit with dedication and determination and achieved near 100% serviceability of DG sets, in addition to the unit receiving awards for Best Runner Up, Best MI Room and Best MT Section.

On taking over as JD Eng (Jaguar), he evolved a system to scientifically analyse each and every AOG and initiate measures to liquidate the same on a permanent basis. This has resulted in sharp decline in the number of AOGs in Jaguar fleet from 1284 in Mar 2001 to just 600 as on 31 May 2002. Regular meetings with BAe representatives resulted in smooth receipt of Navigation Weapon Aiming Sub System (Nav WASS) repairables from BAe, UK. This resulted in achieving 100% serviceability by a Jaguar Sqn on 01 Apr 2002. He also accomplished the task of transfer/sale of non-moving spares valued at Rs. 16.82 crores from 24 Equipment Depot to HAL for utilisation against manufacture of 17 twin seater Jaguar aircraft. As a demonstration of flair for innovation, 15 Lox converters (costing 2.3 crores) have been recently recovered at Jaguar bases after HAL had declared them beyond economical repair. His deep involvement with Jaguar inventory analysis modified the requirement of drop tanks against War Reserve (WWR) resulting in reduction by 144 drop tanks thereby saving Rs. 32 crores (approx) to the exchequer.

For his high professional competence, unflinching devotion to duty, exemplary zeal and capacity to put in sustained hard work far beyond the call of duty, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Capt Madan Mohan Gupta.
