… not balsamina … could be cultivar of Impatiens pulcherrima.
In Malayalam –Kashithumba
excellent images….great photography
Thanks … for the compliments. Yes, it is commonly called Balsam. In Marathi it is known as Therda. We use the flowers for puja. It has got nice fragrance also.
Oh yes … we also use these flowers for pujas. The petals of this flower are mixed with other petals (like Marigold) and sometimes spread on the thaalis.
I suppose I. balsamina – I. pulcherrima has broader leaves, at least on photo in Flowers of India webpage
I hope impatiens glandulifera
I’ve never seen I. glandulifera with such markings and yellow inside of lower sepal

Impatiens sp from Valley for id
Flowers were small
Any idea about the flower size (length from tip of spur to petal tip)
It looks like Impatiens leggei
Impatiens leggei has much bigger flowers
Again, I checked all possibilities and found nothing similar. As I have only limited access to floristic literature of the region I am unable to recognize this species.
With such difficult genera as Impatiens, we need help of professional botanists, working on the spot (in this case Dr. Pusalkar).
We need also more complete photographic material, it means at least two photographs of flower (face and side view) plus picture of leaves.
I will try to see my folder for more pics..

Perhaps it is Impatiens balfourii?
I. balfourii comes from western Himalayas, leaves are different, as well as spur.
Whole flower of your plant is more similar to I. psittacina, reported from Manipur (but not exactly the same).
Kas week: Symbiosis: You can name it as Impatiens honeybeea 🙂
Isn’t it Impatiens glandulifera ?
Impatiens glandulifera grows in Western Himalayas, whereas photo comes from Kaas plataeu.
