Details :

Group Captain Sivaramakrishnan Srinivasan was commissioned on 1 Jun 60. During his service career he has held various posts in the field and staff assignments.

The Officer was posted as the Chief Engineering Officer of a forward air base in Dec 83. As the head of the Maintenance Organisation, it was his responsibility to optimize the availability and utilization of the vast technical resources of this base which he did extremely efficiently and with maximum safety.

During the last two years, under his active and energetic guidance, the maintenance system has been streamlined and so structured that increased flying effort is available, particularly for the Rakshak fleet. This has been achieved by stringent control of stagger, effective planning of a high order and optimum utilization of manpower, credit for which must go to Gp Capt Srinivasan. Besides the inspections and consequent increase in the flying effort, setting up and effective utilization of new systems like Radar Test Facility, missile testing complex and the specialist vehicles etc have also been carried out successfully under the overall supervision of the officer.

For this commendable professional acumen and dedication, which contributed to the performance enhancement of the airbase, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain S Srinivasan.
