I too think that this is Duranta repens. The new name is Duranta
erecta (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-65221
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duranta_erecta)of Verbenaceae family. It
is a garden plant widely cultivated.

I also thought it was Duranta erecta. However, theplantlist.org says
there are no valid names in the Duranta genus!? Could Dr. Gurcharan
Singh or Dr. Balkar Singh give their views in the matter. Thanks.

Mohan ji
I think you have some confusion. It clears gives Duranta erecta as correct names and D. repens as one of its synonyms.

Dear Dr. Gurcharan Singh,
Thanks for the quick response regarding Duranta erecta. I had made the mistake of looking up D. repens, which is not valid.
