Details :

Squadron Leader Jagdish Prasad Baduni (6853) was commissioned in the Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) Branch of the Indian Air Force in November, 1962. Since May, 1971, he has been serving as the Officer in-charge Central Repair & Servicing Section.

Squadron Leader Baduni fully qualified himself on the aircraft under his care for all types of servicing, fault finding and rectification within a short span of six months. When he took over the duties as officer-in-charge Central Repair & Servicing Section, the serviceability state of the aircraft was extremely poor. There were a number of aircraft which had been unserviceable for a considerable period. Squadron Leader Baduni by hard work, a systematic approach and outstanding management made all these aircraft airworthy.

Throughout the December 1971 conflict, Squadron maintained a high rate of aircraft serviceability.

On those occasions when his aircraft became unserviceable at out-stations he retrieved them in shortest time.

During the middle of 1972 there was a considerable back-log of engine changes due to non-availability of engines and modification kits. When the consignments of engines arrived, they were without complete modification kits. Squadron Leader Baduni arranged indigenous manufacture of some of the kit parts and thus was able to clear the back-log.

Squadron Leader Jagadish Prasad Baduni has made a significant contribution towards high serviceability state of aircraft of his unit and has rendered distinguished service of a high order. He is awarded Vishisht Seva Medal.
