Gp Capt Singh contributed immensely for its preeminent position as the BRD in Maintenance Command topping in production over successive years.

Gp Capt Singh took up repair of antenna post of a Pechora Squadron considered as damaged beyond repair in a road accident. Another outstanding feat was the repair carried out by the depot to modern ST-68U Radar and its power plant.
