Now I feel that species in this thread has to be Spermacoce pusilla & not Spermacoce ocymoides:

FOI link for Spermacoce pusilla is below:

Thanks a lot Vijayasankar ji for raising the doubts.

Experts pl. help.

A reply from Vijayasankar ji:
"Dear Garg ji,
This could be Mitracarpus verticillatus (doubtfully) if the dehiscence
of fruits circumscissile.
I will not be surprised, even if it turns out to be a species of
Hedyotis. It needs critical study.

Thanks, Vijayasankar ji.
I got no pictures for Mitracarpus verticillatus on net, but detailed desc. at link: http://www.aluka.org/action/showCompilationPage?doi=10.5555/AL.AP.COMPILATION.PLANT-NAME-SPECIES.MITRACARPUS.HIRTUS
I don't think it matches with my pictures.

As per given link earlier the current name is Mitracarpus hirtus for which a few pictures available at don't match with my pictures:
