I too think that this is Lepidagathis cuspidata of Acanthaceae family
It seems that this species shows lots of variation both inflorescence and leaves.
Nice pictures!

Thanks to you all - Dinesh Sir. Giby Sir, and Satish Ji.
 
The flower looks like Lepidagathis cuspidata but leaves don't.  But as Giby Sir said " It seems that this species shows lots of variation both inflorescence and leaves", so be it.

Regards
Neha Singh.
