... Helicteres isora L.

On other note, at The Plants List (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2843218) surprised to find one of the synonym is Ixora versicolor Hassk. at highest confidence level.

Yes it is Helicteres isora, leaves appear similar to that of Grewia
sp, but can be easily differentiate by flowers,

this one is from family Sterculiaceae and Grewia from Tiliaceae.

as i wriiten before we cannot 100% depend on The Plant List for Indian
Plant Identification. its better if we do some hardwork by exploring
literature than seeing on The Plant List.

regards,
