Details :

During the operations against Pakistan, Squadron Leader Inder Jeet Singh Parmar carried out sixteen operational sorties out of which seven were low-level reconnaissance missions over enemy concentrations. During these missions, he operated at the extreme limits of the aircraft’s radius of action, very often under enemy anti-aircraft and medium machine gun fire. In one of the sorties, he inflicted heavy damage to an enemy helicopter on the ground. He also carried out nine night air patrols. On the night 14th September 1965 he flew four combat sorties in quick succession after having done a tactical reconnaissance sortie in the afternoon. Single-handed, he succeeded in obstructing enemy bomber and putting them off their bombing aim on our airfield and vital radar installations. In two cases, he chased the enemy bombers away, before they could drop their bombs.

In these operations, Squadron Leader Inder Jeet Singh Parmar displayed commendable courage and remarkable flying skill.
