Details :

Gp Capt R Raghuram has been on the posted strength of the College of Defence Management as a Directing Staff from Jul 81 to Apr 84 and again from 01 Jul 85 to date. Throughout his long tenure of eight years, Gp Capt Raghuram has made a very substantial contribution in enhancing the quality of training at the College and thereby adding to its academic repute.

During his first tenure, Gp Capt Raghuram, as Head of Department of Financial Management, brought to bear his vast and varied experiences in the field and translated these into useful and meaningful class room discussions. It was entirely due to his untiring hard work and ability to put across a difficult subject like Financial Management, that the discipline came to be regarded as one of the best conducted at the College. Gp Capt Raghuram authored a handbook on "Financial Management in Defence Services", which became an instant success.

On his re-posting to the College in Jul 85, Gp Capt Raghuram volunteered for a change of discipline and switched over as Head of Department, Organisation Systems and Perspective Planning in the Faculty of Organisation Behaviour. He revised and updated the College handbook on "Organisat ional Effectiveness", which is today considered as a guide by his colleagues and the Faculty.

For his untiring work, total commitment and dedication beyond the call of duty, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Gp Capt R Raghuram.
