I have two file a & b, first one is georeferenced singleband .tif file and other is .shp file with same CRS EPSG:32645. But at the time of opening, both file works fine separately, but at one window only one is shown, another one is not showing on window, but the name is shown on layers panel.

Name: outlinekmc.shp
Path G:.../outlinekmc.shp
Storage ESRI Shapefile
Geometry: Polygon (MultiPolygon)
CRS: EPSG:32645 - WGS 84 / UTM zone 45N - Projected
Extent: 627231.4324251519283280,2483317.2391181909479201 : 650253.3000616317149252,2503549.0619603917002678
Unit: meters

Name: kmc_main16.tif
Path: ...\kmc_main16.tif

How can I open the two layer one above another, as both the layers corresponding to same area?

  • The coordinates of your tif's extent don't seem to be EPSG:32645

  • But the projection shows ESPG:32645. Is it looks like corrupted?

    Try to change the layer CRS of the tiff file into EPSG:4326 in QGIS. It is just a guess but by looking at the extent it might work.

    The EPSG:4326 part is a guess. There are also other coordinate reference systems using degrees as units. Depending on the use case it may or may not be acceptable to consider that data are in EPSG:4326 just because the result looks about correct. Myself I would try to find metadata about how the tiff file was produced or ask the data provider.

I tried your files. As I wrote in the comments, your TIFF's coordinates are not EPSG:32645 coordinates, they are EPSG:4326. Open your TIFF's Layer Properties and set the layer's CRS to EPSG:4326 and it will be placed properly, as you can see below:
