I have seen this plant in Bengal too which seems to be a probable option.
Yes … this plant is distributed in most part of India 9from South to North), Sri Lanka, China, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia and Africa. This is very common in forest under growth.
Good one … So from your pictures this Desmodium is having a large leaf as compared to many others posted earlier.
Quite a large leaf, and a large shrub too.
Yes u r right this is having very large leaves and thus easy to identify among other Desmodium species.

Kindly help identify this small herb found in a mango orchard on the edge of a scrub forest near Vikarabad, photographed in May 2018.
Height of herb about 10 cms. leaves about 1 cm, maybe smaller.
Thanks, … A Fabaceae member.
the Pod suggests it as Desmodium
may be Desmodium gangeticum variety
It may not be D.gangeticum for I had doubt about the size given; is the leaf 1-foliate or 3 foliate
Looks like Desmodium velutinum.
