Details :

Wing Commander Subharatnam Kasinath has been on the posted strength of Indian Air Force Jaguar Project Team at Warton as its Logistics Member since 30 April 1979. Because of the very rapid induction on the Jaguar into the Indian Air Force, even before its arrival, a large volume of Logistics activity had already commenced. He involved himself closely with the Divisional Spares Department at British Aerospace and within a short period of time had streamlined the procedures to ensure that all our requirements were being met in a smooth and phased manner. Inspite of being severely handicapped in terms of additional staff, he has worked single handedly to monitor all activities which have encompassed not only the Spares supplies but also Repairables and Warranty interests. To be able to tackle such multifarious activities has involved not only grit and determination but also extremely hard work sustained over the last two years. It is to his credit that not only has he kept pace with the output of a big Department, which is manned by over a dozen specialists and helped by a Computer, but has actually stayed ahead monitoring their activities. It is this total involvement in the task that has resulted in his often spotting errors or problem areas, well before they have reached proportions affecting the Air Force's operational or maintenance activities. The Logistics task of introducing a new Weapon System is in today's terms mammoth and being in the fore front Wing Commander Kasinath has displayed devotion to duty, diligence and professional competence on an exceptionally high order. His performance has earned him, and in turn the Indian Air Force, deep respect from all those in British Aerospace who have seen his work first hand. The smooth and rapid induction of the aircraft into the Indian Air Force's Inventory is in no small measure the result of his sustained efforts over the two years period.

For displaying professional skill, dedication, devotion to duty and distinguished service of a high order, the Rashtrapati is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Subharatnam Kasinath.
