Details : Group Captain Sushant Dutta (19243) Logistics was commissioned in IAF on 19 Dec 87. In his 23 years of service, he has held important staff and field appointments that include Logistics Officer of two major bases, Senior Logistics Officer of a prestigious fighter base and staff at three operational command HQs. He was commended by VCAS in 1994 and subsequently by CAS in 1997. For his unmatched professionalism and courage at UN Mission Congo, he was awarded Mention-in-Despatches in 2005. The officer has progressively enhanced his professional knowledge and has achieved exemplary core competency in his branch. As Senior Logistics Officer of a front line fighter base, he proved his mettle in handling exercises, detachments and unforeseen exigencies. While on the posted strength of HQ WAC, his analysis of critical AOGs and spare management was instrumental in reducing a large number of outstanding AOG of almost all aircraft fleets during OP PRAKARAM. As part of the first batch of IAF Contingent for UN Mission Congo, the officer was instrumental in the entire planning, procurement and dispatch of complete inventory required by the contingent for a year long operation in a foreign land where no local support was available. At Congo, the setting up of the camp with the accommodation, offices, messes and external services was squarely on his shoulders. He fulfilled the responsibilities to the highest levels of satisfaction of the entire team of 300 personnel including feeding the entire contingent for a month with ration from India not having reached. Sustained hard work and positive attitude led to his appointment as Staff Officer to the VCAS and CAS. He has demonstrated outstanding managerial qualities and vision in steering the multifarious activities of the Secretariats. His constant monitoring and periodical reviews of all tasks have ensured efficient administration of the offices. He has demonstrated exceptional organizing capabilities and managed large scale events while always cutting costs and ensuring value for money. For distinguished service of high order, Hon 'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Group Captain Sushant Dutta.
