|Details :|| |
Sqn Ldr Rajya Vardhan Ghosh has been on the posted strength of Air HQ since 26 Jan 89 and has been functioning as Assistant Director Co-ordination in procurement, provisioning and monitoring of certain critical areas.
With the collapse of erstwhile USSR, many hindrances had been faced by the IAF in obtaining timely supply of spares. One of the problems was outstanding payments against LPO invoices. Russians had been insisting that unless outstanding invoices were cleared, no further supply will be made to IAF. Sqn Ldr Ghosh with his logistics acumen geared up the entire function and identified problem areas, such as delayed Govt. sanctions or lacunae due to new payment/procurement procedures. He had analysed and prepared a very detailed brief for the defence delegation which visited Moscow during Jun 92. With all the difficulties identified and solution made, majority of the disputed payment problems were resolved and supply of spares for MiG23 and MiG-29 resumed.
In yet another case, with his critical analysis, Sqn Ldr Ghosh highlighted a very crucial aspect pertaining to long outstanding recoveries from Russians on account of HAL avionics fitted on AN-32 aircraft. The Russians had agreed in principle, a reduction of Rs. 50 crores due to overcharging.
For his distinguished services of very exceptional order, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Sqn Ldr Rajya Vardhan Ghosh.
