The governance, risk and compliance services (GRCS) of an organization helps to govern the strategies, manage the risks, mitigate the problems identified, and to comply with the rules, regulations, policies and procedures of the organization. The study deals with the investigation of the process of a paper mill. Internal financial check audits are performed, using a risk matrix to consolidate process inefficiencies and gaps. Interviews conducted identify the employee related problems. The standard operating procedure (SOP) are compared to the benchmarks followed in the industry and recommendations are provided to improve the processes. The audits conducted identified non-compliance in the areas like manufacturing process, regular medical tests of employees, delay in the payment of provident fund, workers who have worked without taking required amount of rest and excess disposal of waste. The GRCS framework designed through the current investigations helps to comply with all rules, regulations and policies in paper manufacturing industry. The non-compliance could be avoided in advance before the statutory bodies by training the workers regarding the various policies and procedures of the organization.
