I think this is Amaranthus gangeticus L.( Amaranthus tricolor L.) in Bengali we call it "LAAL SAGH" used as a leafy vegetable.

Vijayasankar ji
Perhaps you are right. The shining leaves probably prevented me from thinking about it. Perhaps dry hot climate of Delhi does not allow such luxuriant growth here.

Dear Dr. Gurcharan Singh ji,
The leaves are not shining as much during the summer, so both of you
may be correct. Promila ji is right in a way, these leaves are edible
and I enjoy them.
Regards
Yazdy
