Hi Aniket,

The Workflow rule executes before the Process.

Please see the Order of Execution in Salesforce:-
https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apex_triggers_order_of_execution.htm 

See point No.10 and 13.

Hope this helps.

When Workflow rule gets executed thats done by the workflow engine where as approval process is actioned by SF server thread so the order is Workflow rule followed by process.
