The taxpayer may get separate GSTIN for the different business premises of the same business. The architecture of the GSTIN is given below:
Two alfa-digit fields have been provided for registration of different business verticals of the taxpayers in the same state. Hence more than 336 entities may be registered at the same PAN in one State.
First two digits represents state’s code which is based on the Census Code utilized by the Election Commissioner of India. Combination of Alfa-Numerical codes (1-9 and A-Z) are utilized to prescribe separate entities of the business vertical/premises of the taxpayers registered separately in the state. The last digit Check Sum is a form of redundancy check, used for error detection on identification numbers.

The deeming provision has been made under sec. 26 of the CGST Act, 2017.
