Doesn't look like A. indica. In A. indica the throat is white here the throat is Yellow. Further the A. indica is taller than this  


I think this could be Christisonia tubulosa - Magenta Ghost Flower of Orobanchaceae
Please refer @

Giby

Please also check it for Aeginetia pedunculata (now A. acaulis). There seem to be few varieties in this.

Dear Prasadji, Gibyji & Vijayasankarji

Thank you so much for the discussion. Gibyji,  the stems in this sp was branched from near base, but it is not seen in  Christisonia tubulosa. Can you please write some other characteristics that I can compare with.  
Vijayasankarji, I have not found any scapes here like in A pedunculata.
Regards,
Raju

I think you have confused the clustered flowers at the stem apex as branches actually they (branches you said) are the pedicels of each flower. 
Yes this is a species of Aeginetia only. Only in Aeginetia you can see spathe like calyx.


Please see the key @ http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=10639 but I coultdn't reach the species.
