Plant posted here grows near streams in evergreen forests in western
ghats, it possibly can not grow in a garden in Mumbai. There are
several differences in the 2 plants besides just one similarity in a
colour patch on petals. This was discussed at length only recently.

Hello
As per my concern if the plant with axillary, solitary or rarely 2 to three flowers then it's...........  
Capparis heyneana Wall. ex
Wight & Arn. 
Prodromus Florae Peninsulae Indiae Orientalis 25. 1834
.
 or 
Flowers strictly solitary then it might be...........................
Capparis zeylanica L. 
Species Plantarum, Editio Secunda 1: 720. 1762.
