Details : Air Commodore Armada Kanta Misra (17201) was commissioned in the Indian Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller in the administrative branch on 28 May 1983. In his 31 years of distinguished service, he has held many important appointments including that of a DASl Inspector, Director at Air HQ and CATCO at Command HQ. He was the Chief Administrative Officer (C Adm 0) of a very active premier fighter base. As C Adm 0, the officer initiated and accomplished work services that contributed significantly in enhancing the security environment of aircraft operating areas which has positively affected the operational preparedness of the fighter Squadrons based in the Station. He has also displayed tremendous acumen to handle mega pilot project pertaining to the work of 'Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI)' System that not only effectively houses the modern technology and advanced equipment related to the Project but has also won accolades by Builders Association of India as a "Well Built Structure". The officer can be duly credited for spearheading the drive from the Station for segregation of commercial tariffs being universally charged to the Station by Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Corporation Limited (MSEDCL)to domestic rates, thereby achieving savings to the tune of approximately Rs. 17 lakhs per month to the exchequer. In his relentless pursuit of the issues in respect of encroached IAF Land, he strongly projected the case to the Maharashtra State Government and achieved an 'In Principle' agreement by the Chief Secretary, Maharashtra to order the Pune Municipal Corporation to study the case for giving land adjoining the AF Station in lieu of encroached land. The Officer has been extremely proactive in directing efforts of administration towards improving the quality of life of air warriors and their families and achieving accolades in Sports. His administrative acumen was clearly visible in seamless handling of the visits of VIPs including Prime Minister of India during 2014 & 2015. Previously, while being at Air Headquarters, the officer contributed significantly toward the formulation of policy and guidelines in respect of Runway Resurfacing Projects for the lAF. For distinguished services of a high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Air Commodore Annada Kanta Misra.
