    If a proprietorship firm has submitted their CST/VAT/TIN. If the name of the entity as mentioned in the TIN is ‘XYZ Enterprises’ while “ABC Associates” is mentioned as a separate line of business under the same TIN, will that qualify as a valid entity proof of ABC Associates? In the above case, the proprietor for both the firms is the same.
