No issue Nidhan ji
Species of Erythraea are now transferred to Centaurium. This could be C. tenuiflorum, but needs confirmation

This could be Centaurium centauroides (= Erythraea roxburghii).
FoI includes these names (flowers are pink here) as synonyms to C. meyeri (= E.meyeri), whose flowers are said to be 'invariably white' (Ref. FBI).

Yes the flowers seem clearly pedicellate. This should be  Centaurium centauroides (= Erythraea roxburghii).  as suggested by Vijayasankar ji
