    @Aditya,

    Thanks for your question and I can see why you are confusing here. This is common confusion when relating to terms and definition.

    From my experience, most of companies use Smoke test and Sanity test interchangeably and they refer to a small set of test performed when we have a new build before starting testing further the build. If the build fails to test (literally, you see the "smoke"), the build is rejected to fix it.

    My suggestion is to accept the confusion right now for those terms and move forward.

    I also wrote a blog post in which I suggest to stop worrying terms and defintion matter. You can read it here: https://45.63.92.193/new-tester-stop-worrying-these-things-and-youll-be-fine/
