Air Marshal Dushyant Singh was commissioned in the IAF on the 14th January, 1956. In his service career, the Air Officer held a number of command and staff appointments with distinction which include command of the crucial Strategic Reconnaissance Squadron, a fighter base, AOC Jammu & Kashmir and Senior Air Staff Officer of an Air Force Command.
Air Marshal Singh commanded a key training institution and later a vital Air Force Fighter Base which housed a mix of many types of aircraft as well as firing range. Displaying his usual determination, he was able to bring up his base to a high level of operational preparedness. Later, he was placed in command of J&K area in the rank of Air Vice Marshal during the height of Siachen crisis. On this assignment, he displayed rare resoluteness of purpose and brought glory to the IAF in the air support role in conjunction with the Army. The Air Officer continues to serve the IAF as the Air Officer Commanding-inChief of the Eastern Command. In a short period since his taking over the Command, he was able to appreciate the priorities of the Govt. and dovetail them with the Command plans. Sensing the need to bring economy in Govt. expenditure, he was able to reduce the man power by 3000 without sacrificing the operational commitment of his command.
Air Marshal Dushyant Singh, VM, VSM has, thus, rendered distinguished service of the most exceptional order.
