The following acts of misconduct broadly have an element of Vigilance angle:-

i. Demand and/or accepting gratification other than legal remuneration in respect of an official act or for using his influence with any other official.

ii. Obtaining valuable thing without consideration or with inadequate consideration from a person with whom he has or likely to have official dealings or his subordinates have official dealings or where he can exert influence.

iii. Obtaining for himself or for any other person any valuable thing or pecuniary advantage by corrupt or illegal means or by abusing his position as a public servant

iv. Possession of assets disproportionate to his known source of income.

v. Cases of misappropriation, forgery or cheating or other similar criminal offences.

vi. Gross or willful negligence; recklessness in decision making; blatant violation of systems and procedures; exercise of discretion in excess, where no ostensible/public interest is evident; failure to keep the controlling authority/superior informed in time

          The above acts of misconducts are only illustrative in nature. Broadly speaking, all acts which have illegal or irregular monetary consideration or where the organisation suffers financial losses on account of gross negligence on the part of the employees, have a Vigilance angle.
