Group Captain Lov Kumar Vig (14732) Administration was commissioned in the Administrative Branch of the IAF on 29 Dec 1976. In over 28 years service he has held several key appointments at Operational Wings, Directing Staff at Air Force Administrative College (AFAC) and Staff appointments at Air HQ. At AFAC, besides being an efficient directing staff, he compiled a 'Law Guide' to help Administrative Officers in effective discharge of legal aspects of administration. Presently, he is functioning as Chief Administrative Officer at Air Force Station Adampur since 05 April 2004.

He is a highly motivated Administrative Officer, who has constantly exhibited a very high degree of professionalism. Through judicious use of NPFs, Work Services & Public Funds, he has renovated and created various facilities for Personnel Below Officer Ranks (PBOR) that have enhanced the quality of life of all Air Warriors. Numerous administrative measures introduced by him have helped save precious man-hours. While improving quality of life and providing good administration he has been very cost conscious and maintained a healthy growth of Non Public Funds.

Through implementation of various administrative measures and installations of electricity saving devices the station has been able to save electricity tariff to the tune of over Rs. 12 Lakhs in the last one year. The Doaba region is very fertile and wild vegetation growth is rapid & rampant. With his personal involvement and effective utilization of all available resources the station could keep regular check on growth of wild vegetation. This has contributed significantly towards creating a clean and good environment conducive for safe flight operations.

Gp Capt Vig provides proactive Administrative Supports to all personnel at AF Station Adampur. He is a good event manager. Under his guidance the station conducted Air Force Best Physique Championship 2004 & various WAC Inter Area Championships. A security software 'SECUREMM' was developed to automate all data/records regarding functioning of Guard Room to help the duty security staff in identifying/verifying the movement of men & materials. This software has since been implemented in other Stations in WAC. He leads by example and accomplishes time bound tasks through team work and personnel commitment. His contributions helped Adampur win the coveted "Pride of WAC" trophy.

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