I think Gamochaeta purpurea (=Gnaphalium purpureum).

Regards,
Ritesh.

Tropicos treats Gamochaeta purpurea (L.) Cabrera under the synonymy of
Gamochaeta americana (Mill.) Wedd., whereas The Plant List treats them
separately.

Comments awaited.

Regards,
Ritesh.

Thanks Ritesh ji, It does seem to be Gamochaeta purpurea, as far as I
could search on the net...

Alok ji
Your mystery plant is not Gamochaeta purpurea, earlier described under the names Gnaphalium purpureum or G. pennsylvanicum (some times treated distinct Gamochochaeta purpurea  and G. pennsylanica as per GRIN or one species Gamochaeta purpurea as per Kew List). That plant grows commonly in Delhi and uploaded by me at FOI. It has leaves which are velvety on both sides, though much more sensely below.



Your plant has leaves which are clearly green on upper surface, a feature of Gnaphalium hypoleucum (still under the same genus)

I think it is close to images at Gamochaeta pensylvanica (Willd.) Cabrera
