Some earlier relevant feedback:
“Looks like Alternanthera pungens
Dr. Gurcharan Singh”
“Alternanthera pungens for me too. Very common in Chennai as a weed.” from Mahadeswara ji.
“Yes Alternanthera pungens a weed in West Bengal too
"Yes Muthu ji. Your doubt is genuine. The leaves of A. pungens more or less rounded in outline, and perianth with sharper tips. This could be A. ficoidea.--
