Details :

Group Captain Chandalingappa Sannachandappa Havaldar (16256) Adm/ ATC was commissioned in the IAF on 13 Dec 80 and has been on the posted strength of premier fighter Station wef 19 Jul 04 as the Chief Administrative Officer. He has held key appointments like Directing Staff (Adm) in Air Force Academy and Air Force Administrative College and JD Air Staff Inspection (Adm) at Air HQ in the past.

In AF station Srinagar, the officer has made persistent efforts to improve the admin services and initiated a number of projects to improve the quality of life of personnel. His judicious utilization of Human Resources has ensured the proper monitoring of the works services and the completion of jobs such as stabilized power supply, water filtration plant, hot water plants etc. He has ensured optimum management of the Non-Public Funds to build up the infrastructures at the station.

This station had to undertake massive relief operations in Kashmir valley following two natural disasters - one of unprecedented snowfall in February 2005 and the other of a massive earthquake in October 2005. During both these relief operations the station had to manage totally undefined and new administrative challenges where the officer performed as the lynchpin of the operations. For the first time in its history the IAF adopted four earthquake affected villages at the Indo-Pak border. Once the relief operations got over the station was tasked to undertake complete rehabilitation of about 600 families in these villages amidst a situation of security threat. It was under the officer's supervision that all the measures of development of infrastructures and distribution of rations were conducted.

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