Details :

Group Captain Sudesh Pal Vohra joined the Indian Air Force in 1957. During his commissioned service of 25 years, the officer has held various important, challenging and high-pressure jobs.

On his posting as OIC Drafting Wing at AFRO in March, 1983, he took upon himself the challenge-of achieving the organizational aim of operational efficiency. To this end, he took positive steps to motivate the work force and ensure optimum utilisation of the existing resources essential for efficient handling of highly sophisticated systems.

This officer with his vast experience, analytical and mature handling, has been able to meet the challenge of managing vast, highly skilled manpower and also looking after their human requirements. By introducing extended tenures, he has not only ensured greater use of expertise, but also improved the satisfaction level of men. About 90-95% airmen are now given first or second choice of posting on completion of a tenure in a hard area.

During the last year over 8,840 promotions were authorised. By his meticulous planning, he made sure that movement was necessitated only in 600 cases. Similarly due to his perseverance, there has been a sharp decline in the outstanding movements. From 1651 in 1983 this figure has now been reduced to 869, a drop of nearly 50%. The trained status of the flying squadrons has also improved from 70% to 80-85%. His concentrated efforts have brought about an all-around improvement in the placement planning of airmen and a fair degree of satisfaction level has been achieved.

For his dedication to duty, loyalty to the service and outstanding performance at AFRO, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain Sudesh Pal Vohra.
