Dear Prashant Ji,

I think this is Vigna vexillata (L.) A.Rich.

The wing petals and the shape of the leaves may not suggest that this
as V.vexillata.

In Vigna generally the wing petals are shorter than the standard
petals and the keel petals beaked (which is not visible in the
picture).

The standard petals and the floral arrangement don't support for M.
pruruens as well.

Hello,

Mucuna pruriens always has dark purple calyx whereas the calyx seen in
the picture are green. Another reason why the plant is not M. pruriens

I went through my images of Vigna ungiculata ..the images here resembles to that. hence i can comfortably say it is Vigna unguculata ; however there are few varieties in V. unguiculata as well.
