This is common passion flower passiflora foetida. It is native of South America, naturalised in India.

Hi, Rajesh ji,
Thanks for the feedback.
I don't think it matches the description of Passiflora foetida. Pl. see the Wikipedia link with pictures for Passiflora foetida: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passiflora_foetida

Actually the flower looks pretty similar,except the colours(which I think could vary)

The plant looks like Passiflora.caerulea  (reference :  Tropical garden plants by Bose and Choudhry ).
