Group Captain Charuvassery Ittirarichan Nedungadi (2017) was commissioned in the Indian Air Force in October, 1942. During his long service career, he had held a variety of appointments dealing with administrative, organisational and personnel matters. In all these appointments, he had left the imprint of his personal discipline, efficiency and devotion to service.

Group Captain Nedungadi took over the duties of the Officer Commanding, Air Force Record Office, on 30th December, 1970. At the time of taking­over these duties, there was a largo backlog of pension and gratuity cases, and numerous representations from retired airmen concerning settlement of their dues being received. By establishing personal contact and close liaison with the staff of the Controller of Defence Accounts (Pensions), Allahabad, interviewing airmen retiring from the service, Group Captain Nedungadi was able to clear all arrears. The procedures have now been so laid down that no new arrears are allowed to accumulate.

Group Captain Nedungadi, within a few weeks of taking over command of the Unit, had an 'Airmen Discharge Booklet' printed which enabled retiring airmen to know all benefits due to them and the procedure to obtain these benefits, thereby eliminating most of their grievances.

By his personal example, and. single minded devotion the ideals of the service, Group Captain Nedungadi has forged a closely knit and efficient organisation capable of reacting and producing results in the quickest possible time.

Throughout, Group Captain Charuvassery Ittirarichan Nedungadi has rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
