His supervision and support resulted in all aircrew of 35 Sqn being declared Day Ops and rated as per their experience. Under his supervision 2232 Sqn, another lodger unit of the station achieved the exceptional standard of two 'Direct Hits' during the live firing of P-Ill RPAs, inspite of the system being life expired and awaiting refurbishment by the OEM.

The in-principle approval by Air HQ for the station's upgradation to a Wing (38 Wing), the speedy movement of the station Comprehensive Proposal to MoD for acquisition of additional 300 acres of land, the near successful endeavour to acquire additional 6.5 acres of land at Asthi road inspite of absence of revenue maps are testimony to the officer's involvement and initiative.
