He was also instrumental in implementing the newly introduced budgetary monitoring system at all units under SWAC in true letter and spirit.

Gp Capt Rajeev left no stone unturned to obtain sanction for grants from the Indian Air Force Central Welfare Fund for the welfare and hygiene of the personnel deployed in the field/op areas during 'Op Parakram' under extreme climatic conditions. This dynamic officer through his own initiative undertook periodic staff visits and by proactive approach streamlined/corrected accounting procedures in respect of all Non-Public Funds to obviate irregularities.

An excellent Accounts officer with impeccable integrity, he has always exhibited a positive attitude in extending a helping hand to all stations for any assistance, be it for accounting services or for improvement in quality of life.
