While the yellow flower plant is quite likely Crotalaria filipes, the plant with pods looks to be some species of Alysicarpus.

yellow flower plant is exactly Crotalaria hebecarpa


In the http://www.jejuri.net/environment/indigofera-cordifolia/ colour of flower is yellow. Is it indigofera cordifolia or some other one?

The leaves certainly look to cordifolia, the flowers too look like those of cordifolia, except difference in colour. Very interesting.

I believe that it is Indigofera cordifolia. Let us wait for validating comments.

It is Crotalaria hebecarpa
