|Details :|| 226928 Master Warrant Officer MANINDRA MOHAN SARKAR Mechanical Transport/Fitter|
Master Warrant Officer MM Sarkar was enrolled on 21 Mar 60 in the Mechanical Transport Fitter trade. During his long service of more than 35 years, he has performed creditably.
MWO MM Sarkar was posted to an air defence unit at Bombay on 20 Apr 91. Upon arrival in the unit he studied the problem of extreme corrosion of vehicles, due to tough saline conditions prevalent in the region. He incorporated a number of innovative ideas to improve the serviceability status and could maintain almost 100% serviceability status during his tenure in the unit. Exceptional professional competence and initiative shown by MWO Sarkar has resulted in prompt repairs of transports and radar assemblies thus improving the operational
availability of the radar and saving valuable foreign exchange. He designed and made a valve assembly to repair a radar component of French origin, which became unserviceable and spares were not available, thus saving more than rupees three lakhs in foreign exchange. He also repaired the body and super-structure of a coach in the station workshop by spending only Rs 18,000 against the projected cost of Rs 67,000 for repairs in the local market.
For distinguished service of a high order, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Master Warrant Officer MM Sarkar.
