Details :

Wing Commander Ved Prakash Misra was commissioned in the Administrative and Special Duties Branch in July, 1949. He successfully completed the Defence Services Staff College Course in 1957-58 and has held few important appointments since.

He was Assistant Judge Advocate General (Air) at Air Headquarter prior to his posting to Headquarters Training Command as the Command Judge Advocate in October 1956. As an A.J.A.G (Air) at Air Headquarters Wing Commander Misra was in the process of drafting a new set of Air Force Act Rules. Notwithstanding change of appointment, he continued applying himself to this task and completed the draft in December 1966. The draft has since been approved by the Government and is under issue. In October 1966 when Wing Commander Misra took over the duties of the Command Judge Advocate, a large number of disciplinary cases and courts of inquiry proceeding were pending finalization. He worked hard not only to clear these arrears but also ensured that the new cases received due attention. In so doing, he investigated and removed the causes for delay. He analysed disciplinary cases and traced reasons which led to the commission of avoidable offences. By delivering lectures at stations and units under Training Command he helped in promoting better knowledge of Air Force law and a feeling of greater responsibility for reducing disciplinary cases by preventive action.

Though not part of his duties as a Command Judge Advocate, Wing Commander Misra painstakingly studied civil law, and the practice and procedures of civil courts, and by timely intervention and advice ensured that the interests of Service and the Government in any civil suit or proceedings did not suffer. He also made himself fully conversant with matters of disciplinary proceedings against civil Government servant and advised the Commanding Officers on correct procedures in respect of such proceedings. He wrote and issued training pamphlets giving comprehensive information on the subject and on Air Force law for the use of officers and cadets under training.

Wing Commander Misra has all along taken great pains to keep abreast with the latest trends in legal thinking. As a result his opinions have earned him a reputation for impartiality and high standard of judgment.
