... most probably ... Spiraea canescens ... commonly known as: grey stem spiraea • Hindi: झाड़ मैराला jhar mairala

Looks like one from Rosaceae family. Could be some Sorbus sp.

Spiraea canescens, I suppose
Dinesh Ji, I was going to type this when saw two messages. I confirmed again for Sorbus also, but this seems to be the likey choice.
