    A bust of the Colonel was inaugurated by Lieutenant General Vipan Gupta, Commandant ASC Centre and College in a grand ceremony at the ASC Centre on Saturday. “Colonel Girdhari was a thorough professional, under whose dynamic leadership, the centre had successfully moved and re-established itself in Gaya in an incredibly short time. He had been awarded the Ati Vishisht Seva Medal by the President of India in 1978,” a statement from the Ministry of Defence said.

    A memorial to the Colonel was already existing in Gaya and when the ASC centre moved to Bengaluru in 2011, it was felt that the new campus must also have a memorial in order to keep up the heritage of the centre.
