Sqn Ldr Smarajit Munshi was on the posted strength of a Base Repair Depot, Air Force. He was entrusted with the initial setting up of R-29 project. Later the officer was entrusted with the setting up and commissioning of R-29 Test Bed, the key result area identified for the achievement of task of R-29 engine. The overhaul line has so far produced a large number of engines, thus accruing a foreign exchange saving of Rs. 33 crores.

The Soviets did not supply the spacer to test 47M engine. Also the gas dynamic device for checking anti-surge and dynamic stability of R-29 engine was not supplied by the Soviets.
