Issue with same category slug creation even though both have different parent category.

For example I have structure like this wanted to build up.

Cars - Category
Toyota & Maruti - Subcategory of Cars
Parts - Subcategory of Toyota & Maruti


Wordpress isn't allow it. See attached screenshot.

Replying to rinkuyadav999:

Issue with taxonomy slug creation even though taxonomy term has different parent term and generating different permalink based on slug. I don't think it's permalink component.

Hi @ashokrd2013

Categories are creating perfectly but slug is different and is not according our expectation. Slug is part of Permalinks so i changed component.
