Hi Prasad,
GUESSING it as :
"Flemingia nana Roxb." Considerable name changes and merging has occurred leaving it now as:

Flemingia macrophylla (Willd.) O. Ktze. ex Merr.
Crotalaria macrophylla Willd.
Flemingia congesta Roxb. ex Ait. f.
F. nana Roxb.
F. congesta var. latifolia (Bth.)  Baker
F. congesta var. nana (Roxb.) Baker
Moghania nana (Roxb.) Mukerjee
M. macrophylla (Willd.) O. Ktze.

The Flora of Bombay by T. Cooke (which separates the species) mentions calyx covered with ferruginous glands and :
Pods turgid with greenish-grey tomentum and covered with viscid reddish glands.
Melghat has this plant and it normally has only a few leaves (3-foliolate) or a short woody stem above ground. 
BUT please check the recent literature and recent key for Fabaceae. 
regards
Aparna

Field notes: Undershrub, leaves elliptic (up to 15 cm long), acuminate, flowers white, solitary, capsules and seeds were not visible during the time of collection

  Can it be

Pseudoeranthemum malabaricum,
Syn:
Eranthemum malabaricum ?

Please confirm.

... frankly, am at a loss at commenting on the presence / absence of dots ... not sure of the description put by the author.
In many identities, (the dots,) the colour of flower in general varies for many reasons, yet the plant is considered to belong to particular species.

Please let us wait for comments on this point, as well as validation of your plant being Pseuderanthemum malabaricum.
We may get to know of any other close species.

Regards.
Dinesh

It looks like Pterocymbium tinctorium of Malvaceae. If yes, then this would be an addition to our database!
