Yes, it is dear Saroj ji and Paradesi ji.  But the fruit image is different.  The fruit image is collected from similar plant (in my view) half km distance and no flowers in it.  With kind regards, Sam.

The ID Gymnema sylvestre that suggested by you are correct, dear Saroj ji.  The single leaf and young stem (opposite) images are of the fruit plant's, and original leaf and stem images are under, with kind regards, Sam.

There is another closely related species Gymnema decaisneanum (syn: Gymnema hirsutum Wight & Arn.; Gymnema mohanramii Karthik. & Moorthy) to Gymnema sylvestre.
May be experts help in finalising the id.

Keys are available in Flora of peninsular India.
I do not know if we can decide based on this.

I am sure it is Gymnema sylvestre, dear Garg ji, Keralaplants.in also says it is Gymnema sylvestre. Please check the Malayalam name in screen shot, kind regards, Sam.

Thank you very much for providing the link and information, dear Garg ji. I agreed with the description in the link and the images match with my plant.  G. mohanramii is reported from Kerala, and also listed in Ernakulam District, so I think it is Gymnema mohanramii.  With kind regards, Sam.
