Thanks very very much Garg ji for following this query.
I too strongly believe this plant to be Oldenlandia stocksii Hook.f. ... went through all other posts related to this species in eFI.
Regards.

On going through all the images, I have doubt about sighting of Feb 19, 2011 ... at Dodhani near Matheran, Maharashtra ... they are images: 5460946580_caf16e05c7.jpg and 5460946120_c9d8c13c93.jpg) ... the flowers do not have exerted stamens as in other images ... I am confused about their identity. Sorry for the mess in this post.
Regards.
