It is Leucas linifolia. Leucas aspera will have more bracts and more trichomes.

Sir,

It looks like Leucas aspera, but please wait for Vijayasankar Ji & others. 

I am confused and think we need to recheck all Leucas, e.g. one post by Garg Sir looks same species as in Gurcharan Sir.

Thank you,

Regards,

surajit

"The photograph is Leucas lavandulifolia var. decipiens Hook.f.
this is endemic to Ooty Nilgiris
Sunoj"

Thanks a lot, Dr. Sunoj & Dr. Sampath.

Good morning Alka Ji

Yes, I was wrong. As per flora of British India, unlike L. lavandulifolia it can be confused with L. aspera.

Thank you

Regards
