Details :

Squadron Leader Deepak Chandra Bakshi (7795) Education was commissioned in the IAF on 19 Oct 63. During a span of 17 ½ years he has served on a number of instructional and important staff appointments. In his early service career he worked as an instructor and underwent a Postgraduate Diploma Course in Statistics and computerization at Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta.

In Apr 70 on completion of the above course, he was appointed to take over charge of newly-formed Information cum Data Cell of Directorate of Personnel (Officers). Within a short period, Sqn Ldr Bakshi, through initiative and drive, introduced innovations and improvised methodology which broughtin distinct qualitative improvements in the postings procedures and selection techniques. The data complex thus built through his hard labour and untiring efforts later provided a sound base for final computerization of the entire 'P' Staff Information system.

During 1971, anticipating the impending Indo-Pak conflict the Directorate of Personnel (Officers) embarked upon the preparation and implementation of Manpower Augmentation Plan for the operational units. Sqn Ldr Bakshi worked very hard for prolonged hours, sacrificing his personal comforts to execute with meticulous accuracy the augmentation of operational units facing the enemy during the conflict. The Manpower Augmentation Plan was a success and duly appreciated by the AOsC-in-C of Operational Commands. For his above outstanding contribution, Sqn Ldr Bakshi was commended by the Chief of the Air Staff.

After an exacting and sensitive tenure at Air HQ (Directorate of Personnel (Officers), the Officer worked as Staff Officer to AOCin-C No. 1 Operational Group/HQ Training Command for two years. In July 78 while working as Command Co-ord Officer at HQ Maintenance Command where the main thrust is on production activities he was detailed to reorganize the Data Complex at Command Headquarters for monitoring the production activities of Base Repair Depots/ Equipment Depots and evaluating their constraints leading to shortfalls and suggesting/implementing remedial measures which brought excellent results in the form of increased production. He established a powerful and effective monitoring machinery which kept a close watch on production activities of units and provided timely warning of replenishments. In order to achieve this task the officer has to put in prolonged hours of sustained hard work during and after office hours. Throughout, he showed rare sense of dedication to duty, loyalty and high level of professional competence.

Despite high pressure of work and heavy demands placed on him during the last decade, Sqn Ldr Bakshi with calm composure, remarkable competence and rare tenacity, has continued to work hard to the absolute satisfaction and much appreciation of his superiors. He has remained cheerful throughout and with his capable disposition shown extreme resolution and determination to produce both quantitative and qualitative results.

For his outstanding achievements and untiring zeal, ability and willingness t shoulder additional responsibilities with utmost speed and foresight, the Rashtrapati is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Squadron Leader

Deepak Chandra Bakshi.
