Vigilance is an important management function and of great significance from the viewpoint of the owner of the company. All decisions in a company cannot be taken by the owner. Most decisions are taken by the officers appointed by the owner, and the officers and employees appointed by the company. Vigilance aims at ensuring that decisions are taken by the officers and employees in the best interest of the owner and the company, and without being unduly influenced by personal temptations, and insensitivity to wastage of resources. Apart from taking up anti-corruption measures, watchfulness is also maintained against undue wastage of resources of the company. Vigilance advises the owner and the management on various aspects. GRSE Ltd has a Vigilance Department. C&MD functions as the chief executive on vigilance functions in the company. However, he is advised by the Chief Vigilance Officer, who is usually a central government officer posted on deputation to the company by the government.
