Details :

Group Captain PC Grover (14400) Administration/Legal was commissioned on 23 Jan 1976 in the Administrative branch of the IAF and joined the Department of Judge Advocate General (Air) in 1981. He has held important legal assignments at various Command HQ and Air HQ. He has been commended by AOC-in-C and the CAS. Presently, he is Judge Advocate General (Air) since 01 Nov 2001. As CJA at various Command HQs, Gp Capt Grover's advice has always been sound, meaningful and forthright. The legal acumen and professional knowledge of the officer has contributed immensely in successful defence of civil litigation cases on behalf of the Government. He has been monitoring the progress of about 2600 court cases to safeguard the interest of the State. His personal involvement in settling a large number of civil litigation in the recent past has exhibited his deep sense of commitment and high degree of professionalism. Through his timely intervention and professional competence, he has ensured that decisions of the courts went in favour of Union of India/Air Force. In certain cases he strove hard and got some adverse decisions reversed in appeal thus saving the Government heavy expenditure. The percentage of cases decided in the favour of Air Force has shown distinct increasing trend and Contempt of Court Cases have never attained any alarming proportion.

He has taken upon the task of updating the Regulations for the Air Force as well as Guides for Units on Civil Suits and Service Contracts. These publications are bound to be of immense use while dealing in legal matters and safeguard interests of the IAF. He has also been regularly involved in delivering lectures on Air Force Law and allied subjects for various courses at Institute of Military law, DSSC, CAW and Capsules for Senior Officers Command Orientation.

With his exceptional professionalism, uprightness and dedication in rendering legal advice, keeping the long term interest of service as paramount, he has made substantial contribution towards improvement of discipline and morale in the IAF.

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