Details :

Squadron Leader Jayanta Keshari Ray Barman (5737) was commissioned in Logistic Branch of the Indian Air Force in May, 1959. He took over command of an Equipment Depot in May, 1971. The Depot is established to store and maintain only 275 vehicles for the Air Force, but the number of vehicles held by the Depot has been increasing steadily and now it is storing nearly 600 vehicles. Thus the Depot has for quite sometime now been handling a workload more than twice for which it was established without any significant increase in manpower.

Inspite of heavy workload and shortage of manpower Squadron Leader Barman has met all the tasks assigned to him. By an intelligent application of the new Managerial Techniques, he has effectively reduced the time taken in inspecting and completing all the formalities involved in the issue of the new vehicles. By developing effective liaison with the railways, vehicles allotted out are pushed out at a much faster rate than before. Squadron Leader Barman has thus reduced the turn-around time of the Mechanical Transport vehicles which now reach the Air Force Units much faster than before.

Squadron Leader Barman has achieved these results through his imaginative leadership and successful man-management. His own sustained hard work till late in the evenings has been an inspiration to his subordinates. For his distinguished service of high order Squadron Leader Jayanta Keshari Ray Barman is awarded Vishisht Seva Medal.
