Details :

Group Captain Ramesh Chander commanded an Air Stores Park from August, 1981 to 12 Jan 86.

During his tenure as commanding Officer, he totally identified himself with the needs and requirements of his unit and was able to forge a very close-knit team of officers and men. Under his leadership, the unit recorded growth both in terms of well-designed and well-executed physical assets such as office and domestic accommodation and achievement of all targets set by HQ Maintenance Command in the filed of administration and logistics. So well did the unit perform that in the year 1984 it was awarded the Best Administered Unit Trophy.

The capability of this officer in handling unforeseen situations were also tested many a time during this period. In August/September, 1984, when Delhi and its surrounding areas were in the grip of communal disturbances, the ASP was called upon to assist the civil authority in Gurgaon. A large number of exservicemen living in Gurgaon area also had to be sheltered from violence. Group Captain Ramesh Chander carried out both these sensitive tasks with rare courage tack, sympathy and foresight.

In 1985, the Park was called upon to position explosives at Pune at a very short notice. The task involved meticulous planning in arranging transportation, extreme caution and quick execution. Under the leadership of this officer, the unit again rose to the occasion and completed the task within the stipulated period.

In recognition of his professional competence, ingenuity in planning, exemplary leadership and dedication to duty, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain Ramesh Chander.
