Details :

Group Captain Ramesh Singh Sehgal (6792) F (N) was commissioned in Nov 1962. Since then he has held various flying assignments and has 4771 hrs of flying experience of his credit.

In May 1986, as the Star Sapphire radar at his unit had become obsolete, a new radar was allotted as replacement for this urgent operational requirement. However, Radar Communication Project Office, the erection agency, felt that in view of the mountainous road, the trailer mounted radar shelters and other heavy equipment could not be moved to the unit. Since the operational requirement was most urgent, Gp Capt Sehgal, judging this situation correctly, took upon himself the task of transportation of the radar from the valley to hills and installing it on top of tower.

Group Captain Sehgal surveyed the entire length of the road and in close cooperation and coordination with the civil engineers moved all the trailers to the radar site on schedule. Thus, a project which would have taken approximately two years and cost the exchequer millions of rupees was ready in 3½ months with no cost to the state.

For his exemplary leadership, resourcefulness, innovation and uncasing efforts, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Gp Capt Sehgal.
