Is it Indigofera tinctoria, Sir.
Looks different to me. Number of leaflets ?
Also check for Indigofera karnatakana. Not sure. Only a suggestion.
number of leaflets Seven, Sir.
Any habit image?
It appears close to images at Indigofera angulosa Edgew. ?, as posted earlier by … Appears close except for the pods, which look different as per POWO specimen and GBIF specimen.
I tried keys in FoPI, but did not succeed in reaching the id.
Closest I can go is Indigofera tirta subsp. scabra (Roth.) De Kort & G. Thijsse
It has 5 to 7 leaflets as per description in CABI and IBP.
Also see POWO specimen.
Indigofera trita var. marginulata (Graham ex Wight & Arn.) Sanjappa and Indigofera trita var. maffeii (Chiov.) Ali is also reported from Tamilnadu.
