Details :

Wing Commander Srinivasa Krishnamurthy (5399) was commissioned in Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) branch of the Indian Air Force in May 1957. He has been commanding a Base Repair Depot, since June. 1975, Immediately on taking over the Base Repair Depot, Wing Commander Krishnamurthy applied himself to the task of increasing the production by setting personal example of enthusiasm and dedication to his officers, airmen and civilian workers. The results of these efforts were obvious when within a few months the production almost doubled.

During the previous years one of the reasons of low production was lack of spares. Wing Commander Krishnamurthy got ever this problem by resorting to local repairs and manufacture and by introducing modifications. He also utilized the spares worth lakhs of rupees, which had been classified 'inactive'. He also motivated the workers to do maximum work beyond the prescribed working hours without claiming Over Time Allowance or compensatory off.

For his exceptional skill, organising ability and dedication to duty, Wing Commander Srinivasa Krishnamurthy is awarded Vishisht Seva Medal.
