It is Phyllanthus polyphyllus, called as 'Siru Nelli' (meaning Small Amla) in Tamil.

Is it different from Phyllanthus amarus (keezhaanelli in Tamil, meaning the berries are under the leaves), used to cure jaundice?

Yes, it is completely different. Keezhaanelli (P. amarus) is a herb, whereas this is a large shrub or small tree.
