This seems to be a common wild plant (herb, 1 metre height) growing along the irrigation water channel.
Sonipat, Haryana, today.
Tried to make out its ID in the  Flowering Wild Plant of India, but no luck.
 
Can someone identify it?
 
Regards,

The flowers in the picture look like those of Triadax.

I think Dr. Gautam may be right. It may be Tridax procumbens (Coat Buttons). Experts/ Others may pl. confirm.

Thanks, Nudrat ji for the feedback.
However on checking Bidens pilosa, I didn't find the trifurcation at the tip of the petals as in the posted picture. See the pictures of Bidens pilosa at http://images.google.co.in/images?um=1&hl=en&q=Bidens+pilosa&btnG=Search+Images
