Details :

Air Commodore Ajit Singh (13409) Lgs was commissioned in the IAF on 14 Jul 73. He is an alumnus of DSSC and of the illustrious National Defence College.

The officer worked on manual system of provisioning, in vogue in IAF during Mid70's. Having learnt the intricacies involved, he was chosen among the first batch of Indian Air Force Officers to undergo Computer Training in 1977. During Mid-80's, he was involved in developing and commissioning of an "On-line Inventory Manage ment System" at an Equipment Depot. From there, he was deployed on yet another automation project - to develop an on-line software for the Personnel Branch at Air HQ. Thus, Air Cmde Ajit Singh has been a pioneer in the field of Computers.

Besides such diverse and un-connected assignments, the officer has handled all possible roles of logistics functions at various levels. As a Senior Logistics Officer in the field, he looked after the logistics support function of Gwalior, the premier base of Indian Air Force. As a Command Logistics Management Officer, he was in-charge of logistics activities of an entire region, under an Operational Command of Air Force. As Director Purchase, he handled the Central Procurement process of Air HQ, primarily involving foreign vendors.

The officer has successfully commanded an Air Stores Park for over two years engaged in extending the supply and distribution logistics to Air Force bases in Western Region. He is presently commanding the biggest Equipment Depot in Indian Air Force for nearly two years now. His sharp logistics acumen and innovative approach have helped in resolving many long standing vexed issues. Functioning of depot went fully on-line, with a major thrust on Integrated Materials Management Online System (IMMOLS) which is the computerized way of undertaking logistics activities. Being computer savvy, he instilled a sense of professionalism in pers onnel, leading by example and instrumental in ushering in a new work culture. Depot got its Audit clearance within a year of his taking over the reins and is now headed for paperless working environment. His unending zeal and enthusiasm brought about a quantum impro vement in the Station which earned awards for "Best Equipment Depot" and the "Best Environment" trophies for 2006. For his distinguished service of high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Air Commodore Ajit Singh.
