I doubt it to be Tithonia diversifolia. See the link for it: http://floridagardener.com/pom/tithonia.htm
Thank you. Before posting the pic, I was searching the net for this spc. Tthe leaves on the net looked different from the one I saw. But, Isaac Kehimkar’s Common Indian Wild Flowers (page 68, serial No. 102) depicts it ditto. Comments from experts welcome.
Looks different as per https://efloraofindia.com/2011/02/19/cosmos/
It is different . I will post the photos of Tithonia diversifolia in my garden in due course.
