Look like Urochloa species. Need more photos for confirmation.

Panicum sp., probably wild Panicum miliaceum (cultivated forms are much different)

Thanks manoj ji and Garg ji. 
Panicum miliaceum is larger grass whereas this plant are too tiny about 15-20cm height. Panicle about 5-8cm long. Leaf blade is glabrous, only lower margin of leaf blade have hair on them around 5mm long. 

Is it possible to  Panicum curvifolium ??

Thanks and regards

Urochloa have sessile spikelet. May be this is panicum sp. But which one is hard to know. In our state flora its similar to Panicum curvifolium. Is it possible????

Thanks and regards

Is it short because of grazing by buffaloes or goats? It is closest to wild forms of P.miliaceum (the cultivated forms are much different in size and other characters). P.curvifolium is entirely different. It would be better to protect from grazing or grow ex-situ so that it can attain and observed in its full form.

Will try for  ex-situ for proper identification.
