Details :

Wing Commander Bindinganavalle Garudachar Satyapal has rendered distinguished service to the Air Force for more than twenty two years. He has served as Chief Technical Officer at operational bases and Base Repair Depots carrying out major overhaul and repair of aircraft and equipment. He has also worked as directing staff of a prestigious training establishment and has been on the staff of Headquarters. In all these appointments, he has excelled in the tasks allotted to him, emerged as a natural leader of men, and applied his mind on all service matters when called upon to do so.

During 79 and 80, Wg Cdr Satyapal was required to monitor, coordinate and control a large segment of a very complex project involving large investments of public funds. This task required of him tact, foresight, planning and negotiating skill of very high order and brought him in direct contact with a wide variety of personnel for commercial, technical, and legal-contractual dealings outside his previous experience and training. Wg Cdr Satyapal not only learned fast to perform his job, but also distinguished himself in all these fields.

In recognition of his long and distinguished service, his diligence and devotion to duty, his spontaneous leadership in the technical and administrative fields, and particularly for contribution to the special project to which he was appointed, Rashtrapati is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Bindinganavalle Garudachar Satyapal.
