It does look like Wadelia urticaefolia.

Although there are guidelines for naming plants, but ultimately the spellings given by the original author, even if not sounding appropriate will stay.It is Wedelia urticifolia DC., and that is the correct one

In Dr. Almeida's 'Flora of Maharashtra' it is also listed as Wedelia urticifolia. Wadelia urticaefolia is how it is spelt in Ingalhalikar's 'Flowers of the Sahayadris'.
Pravin's photograph may be of Wedelia glauca. It is a spiny weedy herb which causes bleeding in the mouths of grazing animals due to injuries inflicted by the sharply pointed awned leaf apices [Source - Dr.Almeida's ' Flora of Maharashtra' Vol 3].
