Though I have not seen the plant it seems to be a common plant in Maharashtra too.
The trifoliate leaf and its decription in the text given by you is visible in your picture.
Additionally the calyx teeth exceeds the tube here and the pods are 2 seeded hairy velvety and of course there are few varieties with some difference in characters which obviously you are knowing but I am writing here just for some others.
