Details :

Group Captain Dinesh Mukundan (13508) Administration/Air Traffic Controller was commissioned in the Administrative Branch in 1973. He was adjudged the best ATCO of the IAF in 1983 and thereafter posted as Commanding Officer of prestigious Air Force Element of IMTRAT in Bhutan during 1985-87.

During his distinguished career having 32 years he has been the Chief Administrative Officer of four different IAF stations i.e. AFAC, AF Stn Jorhat, AF Stn Palam and Air Force Academy and held instructional appointment CIGDOT at AFA. He has also served in a prestigious staff appointment as officer in-charge Drafting at Air Force Record Office. Gp Capt Mukundan is an alumnus of National Defence Academy. He was commended by Chief of the Air Staff in 1998 and by Air Officers Commanding-in-Chief, WAC and TC in 1990 and 1996 respectively. As Senior Personnel Staff Officer at Central Air Command, he has worked with dedication and perseverance in bringing about significant improvement in all facets of personnel administration in all units under Central Air Command. His humane approach and untiring efforts in making the existing policies and procedures more logical, simple and user friendly have been a hall mark of a very able and efficient administrator. Wherever he has worked during his last 32 years of service he has left very significant impact and a legacy behind which is worthy of emulating by his successors. His pioneer efforts in successfully introducing a vermiculture zero garbage scheme with no additional cost at Air Force Academy (one of the largest populated stations in the IAF) proved so successful that Air Headquarters directed all stations in the IAF to implement the zero garbage scheme on the pattern of Air Force Academy.

For his distinguished service of high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain Dinesh Mukundan.
