Iin Hindi Hertaland it is known as Kamini, still I want to be clear about the botanical name. I was always told it is Murraya exotica; is  Murraya exotica and. M. paniculata the same plant.

Yes Kamini is commonly used name for this plant, other names being Mar: Pandari, kunti, marchulajuti; Tel: Nagagolunga, karepaku; Tam: Konji; Kan: Angarakana, gida, pandry; Oriya: Ban mallika, harkankalli; Eng: Orange jessamine.

Yes M. exotica L., now considered as synonym of correct name M. paniculata (L.) Jack. by majority of authors including eflora of Pakistan, GRIN website

Flora of China, however, treats them distinct, although differences are minor:

M. exotica                                                                             M. paniculata

Trees to 8 m tall                                                                    Shrubs or trees, 1.8-12 m tall
Leaflets elliptic-obovate or obovate, 0.5-3 cm broad                   Leaflets suborbicular, to ovate to elliptic, 1.5-6 cm broad
Leaves 3-7-foliate                                                                   Leaves 2-5-foliate
Sepals 1.5 mm                                                                      Sepals 2 mm
Petals white, oblong, 1-1.5 cm.                                                                   Petals white, narrowly elliptic to oblanceolate, to 2 cm.
Fruit broadly ovoid, 8-12 × 6-10 mm.                                                          Fruit orange to vermilion, narrowly ellipsoid or rarely ovoid

Interestingly if we treat them as distinct species the above plant would belong to M. paniculata, and what I have photographed from Delhi is M. exotica. I am uploading the photographs for comparison.
