Details :

Group Captain Srinivasan Krishnaswamy (5149) was commissioned in the Education Branch of the Air Force in April, 1956.

During more than 25 years of service; the officer has served in various assignments, initially on instructional duties at various training institutions, including the National Defence Academy and subsequently on staff appointments. While his performance, throughout, has been outstanding, his contribution to the Air Force has been of special significance in two of his important appointments.

Firstly, as Assistant/Officiating Deputy Director of Intelligence at Air Headquarters, in the early 70s, the officer, by his acumen for identifying weak areas and suggesting remedial measures, made substantial contribution towards bringing about a remarkable improvement in the security environment at various operational Stations just before the commencement of the Indo-Pak conflict in 1971. He also codified the instructions and procedures for handling the highly sensitive tasks entrusted to the Directorate of Intelligence thereby enhancing the efficacy of security/counter-intelligence operations in the Air Force.

More recently, in his present appointment as the Staff Officer to the Chief of the Air Staff, an appointment which he has held for more than three years now, the officer has brought in a high degree of improvement in the staff work by his involvement, maturity and the highest norms of inter­personal relations. By virtue of his professional and un­biased approach to the wide spectrum of subjects referred to the Chief of the Air Staff, he has rendered invaluable staff assistance to the Chief of the Air Staff.

Group Captain Srinivasan Krishnaswamy has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
