|Details :|| |
Wing Commander Ramesh Chander Gosain was commissioned into the Air Force in May 1965. A fighter pilot of proven merit, he was awarded Vir Chakra for his gallant acts during the Indo-PakWar of 1971. He is a Fighter Combat Leader, and QFI with A2 Category. As Flight Commander in a frontline fighter squadron, he distinguished himself creditably leaving his mark of ingenuity, resourcefulness, professional competence and administrative skill of a very high order. All his qualities when coupled with his capacity to work hard under stress, acquired entirely new dimensions.
Since 10 May 1982, Wg Cdr RC Gosain has been holding the appointment of DDPO-I at Air Headquarters. His responsibilities entail posting of all officers upto the rank of Wg Cdr, acting promotions upto the rank of Sqn. Ldr., courses for all officers, temporary duty and attachment to and from Air Headquarters and Inter-Command attachment/ temporary duties, study leave, furlough and leave pending retirement, encashment of leave and regularisation of excess leave.
His tenure as DDPO-I has had to be a constant battle with increasing shortages of officers in all branches compounded by new inductions and new raisings, all to be manned effectively from existing resources. By sheer ingenuity, hard work, single-minded application and constant devotion to duty at great personal sacrifice, he has been mainly responsible for ensuring the viable manning state of all Air Force units in the rank structure of Wing Commanders and below, balanced manning at this rank level being most essential for the optimum achievement of the role/task, by the units.
For his diligence, sincerity, devotion to duty, integrity of the highest order and output beyond the call of duty, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Ramesh Chander Gosain.
