Crotalaria ¿ species ?
Below are two sightings; but I strongly believe they are the same species of Crotalaria based on their habit and habitat. Growing in scrub vegetation with a tendency to grow gregariously, these have small flowers, just about 10 ± 2 mm.

Crotalaria species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)
It looks like Crotalaria albida
Sorry- Flowers more than 5 in the inflorescence- May not be Crotalaria albida.
This can be either C. montana or C. linifolia.
Thank you very much … for possibilities of ID.
Will study later the two possibilities.
I think matches with images at Crotalaria montana Roth
