Details :

Group Captain Gurudev Lingayya Hiremath (14947) Adm was commissioned in the Indian Air Force on 10 Jun 1977. He has held various important and sensitive posts including CO of a Liaison Unit, Chief Training Officer of a Training Establishment and Chief Adm Officer (C Adm O) of a flying training base. Due to his exceptional performance he was commended once by AOC-in-C and twice by the Chief of the Air Staff. He continues to be very enthusiastic in every task assigned to him.

Since 01 Apr 04, he has been functioning as C Adm O at Air Force Station, Agra. He has earned a reputation for providing a fair, transparent and considerate administration resulting in overall satisfaction and high morale of the personnel. He was instrumental in sorting out long outstanding land matters and successfully claimed ownership of unattended land. Encroachment clearance including demolition of unauthorised structures was executed very systematically without any adverse reaction from the civilian population. During his two year tenure as C Adm O, the Stn has been awarded with 'Pride of CAC' Trophy and 'Best in Adm' Trophy.

He is methodical in his approach towards work services. His untiring efforts have resulted in a total transformation of living conditions in the station bringing about a quantum improvement in services. Due to his close supervision and monitoring, prestigious Air Force projects like Hydrant Refuelling System and Married Accommodation Project, are progressing as per schedule with strict adherence to quality control. He incorporated several innovative modifications and improvements in the ongoing Married Accommodation Project for higher user satisfaction. He has significantly contributed in crystallisation of AWACS Induction Plan at the Air Force Station. He has successfully introduced a zero garbage scheme where the domestic waste is collected and converted into useful eco friendly manure. This scheme is an example for other stations to emulate. He efficiently organised major activities like Suryakiran aerobatic show, static displays, cultural and sports events adding colour to the life in the station. All these tasks required efforts beyond the call of duty which was cheerfully accepted compromising his personal comforts. Leading from the front and through personal example he provided an impetus to the Adm Support Group which rose to meet challenges of diverse nature with zeal and vigour.

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