This is not C. olitorius, may be C. tridens. I will upload C. olitorius soon.

... Geeta ji, your plant is most probably C. aestuans ... I did not verify the fruits earlier.

Geeta ji
Your plant seems to be C. aestuans without much doubt. My plant will have to be resolved.

Recently a lot of discussion took place on the genus Corchorus.
I decided to study maximum characters of this plant found in Pune today.
It appears to be
Corchorus olitorius
Suggestive facts..........
Leaves alternate; Elliptic ovate with rounded base; acute/acuminate at apex; serrate; lower serratures on both sides prolonged into filiform appendages(Nicely seen in image2)Flowers in leaf opposed axillary peduncles.
Flowers 1 cm yellow. Sepals 5 oblong apiculate Petals oblong spathulate. Style short.
Capsule 10 ribbed,long, linear, cyllindric, erect, beaked(?) 5 valved(Seen in magnified cut section image4)
Cheers

Satish ji
Your plant was (and is) definitely C. olitorius. No doubt on that. My plant will have to be relooked (I will do when I reach back Delhi on 13th).
