Dinesh ji,
I get the following names as per Flora of India (compiled from literature and field notes):

Beng.: Kalisitki, Kamkatajuli, Silpati;  Hindi: Tikhar;  Kan.: Billisulli, Kaadu nugge; Mal.: Chuvanna-niruri, Kattu-niruri, Pavalapulah, Pavilapulu;  Or.: Jajan;  Sant.: Kadupala, Karki;  Tam.: Kattuniruri, Manipullanti, Pomarai, Seppulae, Sithuruvam;  Tel.: Adavimunaga, Balli, Ettapurugudu, Yellari.

Now there is no need to give a hyphen to join the words vitis and idaea.
I appreciate the photography.
Regards, 
Tapas.

Dinesh ji,

Sorry.  the hyphen in this case, i. e. vitis-idaea will stay.  I have checked Article 60.9. of ICN.

I am attaching herewith extracts from the following publication which may be found useful:

Chakrabarty, T. & M. Gangopadhyay 1996. The genus Breynia (Euphorbiaceae) in the Indian subcontinent. Journal of Economic and Taxonomic Botany 20(3): 501-512. 
Hope you are having the following publications: 
The Wealth of India (Raw Materials) and 
Indian Medicinal Plants by Kirtikar & Basu (ed. 1935).

Regards,
Tapas.

Thank you very very much Tapas ji for all these efforts. 

I request my friends to provide following names in their native scripts; I will then be able to add the names to the names' database.
  1. Bengali (B. retusa): chitki
  2. Bengali (B. vitis-idaea): silpati, kalisitki, kamkatajuli
  3. Konkani Goa: haddin (in Devanagari or Kannada)
  4. Hindi (B. retusa): kambhi, kalamahomad
  5. Hindi (B. vitis-idaea): tikhar
  6. Oriya: jajan
  7. Tamil: periseelai
  8. Telugu: devadai, dawadaree (I think there could be a typo here - it could be devadari).
Regards.
Dinesh

It is called as ఎల్లారి,ఎర్రపురుగుడు, యెర్ర బల్లి, పురుగుడు , పొగడ (Telugu). Dinesh ji is correct, because the red fruit resemble coral it is called pogada(పొగడ)
Thank you
