Hi,

This to me looks like Chrozophora plicata from Euphorbiaceae.

Nidhan ji ... am glad our views match to the genus level !!

... as far as exact species, some digging of flora may be involved:
1) Chrozophora rottleri is put as synonym of C. plicata at Flora of Pakistan [http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=250090883]
2) Chrozophora rottleri has synonyms: C. plicata var. rottleri, Croton rottleri at The Plant List [http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-39832]
(have not taken care of author citations).

Dinesh ji
As per KEW Plant list Chrozophora rottleri and C. plicata are two distinct species. The true C. rottleri to my mind is one displayed at FOI website with non-pleated leaves and white flowers whereas the above plant, and one I had uploaded a few days back clearly pleated (plicate ) leaves and smaller pink flowers, characteristic of C. plicata..

A reply in another thread:
"The real Chrozophora plicata (Vahl) A.Juss. ex Spreng. does not occur in India. It is confined to Africa and Middle East. What is given as C. plicata in Indian floras are now known as Chrozophora rottleri (Geisl.) A.Juss. ex Spreng.

I have sent the message to Dr. Balakrishnan for confirmation.  Result is awaited.  But it is the commonest species, C. rottleri.
