looks like Hypericum elodeoides
But height seems to be much more than H elodeoides

Hi Balkar Ji
I too think this is Hypericum elodeoides Choisy in Candolle, Prodr. 1: 551. 1824. (Syn: Hypericum napaulense Choisy)
Some plants can be bit taller than the descriptive plant after all genetics plays the game.

Hypericum elodeoides is a perennial herb scarcely exceeding 60 cm. This should be H. lysimachoides Wall. which is now correctly known as H. dyeri Rehder
