His administrative acumen was visible in seamless handling of the visits of WIPs including the President of India in Mar 2013. His planning and meticulous paperwork resulted in sanction of a large number of high value works projects including the revival of much awaited Runway Resurfacing project and approval of MoD in Mar 2014. This would be a milestone in infrastructural development and enhancement in operational capability at this base. The quantum of responsibility of C Adm 0 of this strategic transport base is manifold while comparing other stations due to distinct variables coupled with the domestic area being spread over in three different pockets of the city. His perseverance in effective liaisoning with civil administration has resulted in developmental and upliftment of Air Force residential sectors in UT. His exemplary rapport with the state Government machinery has resulted in 100 % mutation of defence land in Distt SAS Nagar, Punjab. His initiatives and incessant drive to improve the quality of life is visible in revival of the Airwarrior Institute (Mehak Complex), improved standards of DSC guard rest rooms, airmen billets and many such other peoples' issues. These initiatives were highly appreciated by the AOC-in- C during his visit to the station in Mar 2014. With his motivation, positive attitude and sound operational orientation, the officer is an asset to the organisation. For distinguished service of high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain Sanjive Dhaka.
