The plant reminds me of Isodon rugosus, formerly Plectranthus rugosus.

Isodon is one more candidate. Morphologically it looks quite similar
(from my website knowledge). Considering that I.rugosus grows at an
alt. 1700- 2500 mt., may we exclude that possibility? It looks to me
closer to either O.gratissimum or O. basilicum.( or even Coleus
forskohlii

Ocimum gratissimum, O. basilicum or Coleus forskohlii never have such a wide
spreading inflorescence. Not these three atleast. If not Isodon rugosus, let
us explore further.

Thank you very much for more information. I am now inclined to agree
with you, Ocimum and Coleus have not such spreading inflorescence.
This is a plant from Bhalukpong about 500 mt at the foothill and at
best 2ft. in height and flowered in May-June. Isodon grows at much
higher altitude, grows 3-4 ft. in height, flowers in July. Still there
is good possibility of its being an Isodon rugosus specimen. Thanks
once again.

Here is some feedback from Pushpa Kumari ji from BSI, Kolkata:
"it may be an Ocimum sps."

Thank you.
