This is Gerbera Jamesoni, commonly called Transvaal Daisy or Gerebera daisy.   I had one plant which died, I think due to over watering.  Here is the picture.

Thanks Pankaj ji for the ID of the flower.

Hi Mani ji,...
Excellent pics of Gerbera....i just love that bright orange colour.
Thanks for sharing.

Is it a season flower?...i mean does it flower only in winter like the
Chrysanthemum??

The description of Cassia Nodosa is given in the below link. It says,
10 stamens, out of which the three in the centre has swelling in the
middle. Since the stamens in the centre do not have any swelling, it
should be C. Javanica as Kenneth and Tanay.

Yazdy.
