As per the flowering most probably it is B. diffusa. Some important details getting from Bombay Flora (It is a Protean plant changing it's appearance according to soil and situation). Please check their distribution in and around the study area.

Yes, Mayur ji, you seem to be right.
Pl. check with Boerhavia coccinea as per A taxonomic revision of Boerhavia (Nyctaginaceae) in southern Africa (South African Journal of Botany Volume 86, May 2013, Pages 116-134). It has been introduced in India as per POWO.
