Details :

Group Captain Munna Rajendra Singh (14768) Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) was commissioned on 03 Jan 1977 in the Engineering branch of the IAF. During 27 years of service he has held several important appointments including the posts of Senior Technical Officer, Chief Engineering Officer, Senior Production Engineer An-32 aircraft, staff appointments at HQ Maintenance Command, HQ Southern Air Command and Air Headquarters. He has been commended by the Chief of Air Staff in 1990. Presently, he is posted to Air Force Station, Agra since 28 Oct 02 and has been functioning as the Group Commander, Maintenance Support Group.

Under the leadership of Gp Capt Singh, the entire maintenance group functioned as a cohesive team and the serviceability of all types of aircraft operating at this Base improved considerably along with a reduction in the (AOG) percentage. With his close interaction and liaison with various overhaul agencies including BRDs and HAL, he achieved expeditious repair of Cat D items (rotables) resulting in decreased downtime of aircraft. His in-depth knowledge, vast experience and deep involvement were amply manifested when a damaged cargo middle door of an IL-76 aircraft needed urgent repair. In the absence of a designated BRD, the officer took up the challenging and complex task of preparing the repair scheme himself and working far beyond the call of duty completed the repairs within a record time of 15 days.

Managerial acumen and interpersonal skills of Gp Capt Singh were amply evident when he seamlessly accomplished the implementation of hitherto unfamiliar squadron concept at the station level. He created an environment of technical excellence in the station that prompted a series of innovations, which included multipurpose test bench, rig for flushing of hydraulic system, hydraulic reservoir pressurisation rig for An-32 aircraft and mobile corrosion treatment rig & universal hydraulic test rig for IL-76 aircraft. His untiring efforts earned laurels when the station was awarded the trophy for "Best in Maintenance" during the year 2003 in Central Air Command.

For his professionalism and distinguished service of high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain Munna Rajendra Singh.
