    Hi Rajeev,

    Assuming that the product table is link to the fields from both taxonomy tables...

    You go to the validation tab in MDM data manager and from fields select your taxonomy1 field name and then from operators select '=' and then again from fields select taxonomy2 field name and you are all set. The expression should look like something this

    Category [Name] = Category2 [Name]

    This expression will return false if the values are not equal and true (no errors) if they are.
