Hi Somasundaram,

Following can be the reason :-
  1.  If you change the Unique Name of an approval process that was previously included in a change set and deployed in another organization, and you resend the approval process via a change set, a new approval process is created upon deployment in the other organization. The previously deployed approval process isn’t modified.
  2.  Change sets don’t include the order of active approval processes from the source org. Sometimes you must reorder the approval processes in the destination org after deployment.

refer this Restrictions for Approval Processes in Change Sets (

Kindly mark it as the best answer if it works for you.


Thanks & Regards,
