Are you trying to host both the services in the same IIS? If so, are you creating applications in the IIS and hosting them?

Try the Microsoft documentation:
Net.TCP Port Sharing | Microsoft Docs[^]

You must define each TCP/IP "Listener" to be on a different port, such as ports 12001 and 12002.

If they are both trying to listen on the same port then they will clash and generate the AddressAlreadyInUseException.

An alternative is to have a "front-end" service that does the listening on a single port and then passes the requests to each service based on it's type or defined destination ("Pune" or "Mumbai") - possibly using names pipes or something similar.
