Details : Group Captain Lalitendra Kaza (21614-R) Adm was commissioned in the Administration branch of the Indian Air Force on 14 Dec 91. In his career spanning 24 years, he has served as Senior Sector Director (SSD), Chief Operations Officer (COO) and Commanding Officer (CO) of frontline radar units. The officer is an Alumnus of the Defence Services Staff College. He has been commended twice by the AOC-in-C in 1995 and by the CAS in 2014. He is currently serving as the Chief Administrative Officer (C Adm 0) of AF Station Hasimara. He was the Chief co-ordinator for the President's Standards Presentation (PSP) at the Base in Nov 15.The Base faced multiple challenges of remoteness of location, inadequacy of infrastructure to accommodate close to five hundred additional personnel for almost two months and a protracted monsoon with very heavy rainfall. Undeterred by the challenges, the officer went about the job with immaculate planning and inspirational leadership. He displayed exemplary liaison with station resources to transform a wildly vegetated Base and its surroundings into a befitting one within a very short time. He provided timely guidance and intervention in all facets of the PSP ensuring flawless conduct of the event. The Base is slated for the induction of a number of new weapon systems, necessitating conceiving a modified Master Zonal Plan, which the officer accomplished exhibiting exemplary foresight. In 2016, once the Base was selected for the induction of the latest aircraft, the officer involved himself deeply with the Air HQ and OEM teams in finalising the designs for specialised buildings, resolutely went about clearing the wild undergrowth at the areas earmarked for construction of infrastructure and assisted in fast tracking the Boards of Officers to pave the way for timely induction. The officer through his excellent liaison with civil authorities secured about 20 acres of Air Force land with is outside the walled boundaries of the Base. Additionally, he has made the foundation work to facilitate accrual of about 500 acres of land required for the development of the Base in view of the future inductions. The officer was instrumental in the implementation and gainful utilisation of the MES Online Complaint System in vastly improving the clientele satisfaction, making the Base the frontrunner with the EAC AoR. His active involvement ensured seamless implementation of the eticketing scheme. The officer also meticulously went about changing the existing area lightings within the Base from the earlier conventional lighting systems to LED resulting in significant enhancement of Base security and savings to the exchequer to the tune of 90 Lac. He also made noteworthy contributions in areas pertaining to vegetation clearance, providing healthy living environment, and overall improvement of the quality of life. For distinguished service of high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain Lalitendra Kaza.
