Details :

In 1964, a large number of aircraft had accumulated in one of our Base Repair Depots awaiting production. There was, therefore challenge to be met and the backlog to be cleared for improving the operational preparedness of units in the Air Force. Wing Commander Ganendra Mukherji who was posted to this Base Repair Depot as Chief Technical Officer in September, 1964, set about this task with grit and determination. Within a short period he organised the working of the various sections and increased the productivity.

During the hostilities with Pakistan in 1965, necessity for even better effort was clearly the need of the hour. Wing Commander Ganendra Mukherji rose to the occasion and by his sustained hard work, inspired leadership and efficient direction, achieved maximum results. It is also largely due to his personal guidance and participation that an important operational modification on Mi-4 helicopters was undertaken and completed by this Base Repair Depot in record time during this period.

Again during December, 1965, and the subsequent months, when this Base Repair Depot was reorganised Wg. Cdr. Mukherji was called upon to put in very hard and exacting working routine to ensure speedy completion of the tasks. This officer once again displayed qualities of resourcefulness and organising ability of a high order and notwithstanding his poor state of health at that time, achieved commendable results.
