Thanks Usha di.
This plant is endemic to northern Western Ghats (not sure of the exact range) - naturally grows in wild.

NPGS / GRIN lists some more states of India - Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh ... friends from these states may validate this distribution.

Nidhan ji, this erect herb / subshrub stands about a metre tall, and bears flowers in axils, blooms early morning.
Most possibly it has restricted distribution, endemic to erstwhile Bombay Presidency.
