Details :

Wing Commander Virendra Kumar Jain was commissioned in the Indian Air Force on 1 Dec 61 and has held important field staff appointments like Senior Technical Officer, Chief Engineering Officer of front line bases and Group Engineering Officer. Presently he is posted at one of the premier transport Squadrons.

Although his new assignment basically involved improving the serviceability state of the aircraft under his charge it also entailed refining the working of the Daily Servicing Section, where he achieved phenomenal success. Often he had to work long hours and very ably diagnosed the key problem areas and evolved effective remedial measures.

In order to achieve the objective of producing "safe and reliable aircraft", Wg Cdr Jain evolved quite a few repair and servicing schemes. But his most remarkable achievement was the review of the first and second line spare indents prepared by Air HQ for the year 1980 and 81. He scrutinised every item mentioned on the indent in the light of his experience. He made a number of changes in the indent as a result of which the indent become more objective and led to saving of foreign exchange to the tune of rupees one crore approximately.

For his dedicated and selfless service, ingenuity, leadership, professional competence and initiative of a very high order, the President is pleased to award VISHISHT SEVA MEDAL to Wing Commander Virendra Kumar Jain.
