Details :

Squadron Leader Davinder Singh Hazuria (8230) AE (M) has been working as Officer incharge S-4 Project and Senior Technical Officer (Mechanical Transport) at one of the operational bases since June, 1979.

During his tenure, the S-4 Project required induction of a sophisticated and modern weapon system into the Air Force. The task involved a new concept of technology and innumerable sophisticated improvisation and adaptions to make the weapon system operational. The project was established and declared operational in record time. By his dedication and sustained hard work he was able to get all systems going on the aircraft and the weapon. The culmination of armament trials of the weapon system held at Kalaikunda during the month of Oct 81. The trials were a total success; and a vital need of the Air Force has thus been met.

In the field of Mechanical Transport administration, once again through his dedicated efforts the serviceability of common user and specialist vehicles was maintained at more than 90%; and the fuel consumption figures were reduced considerably by improving kilometers per litre (KPL) of vehicles, without in any way impairing the operational and administrative requirements of the Station. Apparently, this was achieved by proper coordination and optimum utilisation of resources (as the Mechanical Transports establishments are outdated and there are acute shortages of manpower). The fact that he has been able to ensure a Zero rate of Mechanical Transport accident during the last two years against speaks highly of his leadership qualities.

Squadron leader Hazuria, by his exemplary conduct and intelligent leadership has been a source of inspiration to the personnel placed below him. He has the knack of creating willing workers and producing very rich results under extremely trying circumstances while maintaining a high state of morale among his men. For his outstanding drive, initiative, dedication to duty and professional competence, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Squadron Leader Davinder Singh Hazuria.
