Could this be I. tinctoria
Leaflets are too few (I can see nine) for I. suffruticosa
Pods are too long for suffruticosa

... many thanks for raising your doubts, Gurcharan ji.
Other friends who are familiar with Indigo species may also please put in facts.


The plant in photograph grows in my vicinity, in estuarine area.
The height is just about (hardly) a metre ... and grows as wide too.

The pods we see here are about 4 - 5 cm long, and about 3 mm wide.

Regards.

Many thanks Gurcharan ji. Just as per your thoughts, this ID is resolved to Indigofera tinctoria based on discussion in a recent post of Alka ji.
Regards.
