Dear Muthu Ji,
Can be Launaea acaulis but I am not sure!! Because the plant doesn't bear flowers . I am bad at identifying plants without flowers but the prescence of young capitulum is distinct . So just supporting your thoughts.
Regards
Tanay

To me it looks some species of Gnaphalium, inflorescence should clinch the issue.
