Details :

Wing Commander Sharanjit Singh was commissioned in the IAF in 1964 and had held a number of important appointments. While serving as Senior Technical Officer of a fighter squadron, with his professional competence he maintained a very high serviceability of Aircraft and accident free record for which he was awarded commendation by Chief of the Air Staff. During 1973-77 while commanding a signals unit Wg Cdr Sharanjit Singh by his tireless efforts and optimum utilisation of men and material brought his unit to a very high standard to win "Best Radar Unit Trophy".

Wg Cdr Sharanjit Singh took over the Command of present unit with a number of handicaps, mainly, acute shortage of technicians, inadequate accommodation and high magnitude of pending tasks at Flying Stations. With his enthusiasm, drive and leadership qualities, he motivated his limited men and commissioned two Ground Control Approach stations in record time and brought the third station in final stages. The unit under his leadership is ahead of the task in installation of Direction Finding Navigation aids. He has established a sense of oneness among his men and officers hence none desires to leave the unit though it is a hard living unit.

For his outstanding drive, initiative, dedication to duty and professional competence the President is pleased to award VISHISHT SEVA MEDAL to Wing Commander Sharanjit Singh.
