Height: 20-25 cm
Habitat: semi-evergreen forest edge (road-side)

It could be Indigofera karnatakana Sanjappa for the following:
Leaflets linear-obovate or oblanceolate., apex apiculate, base subacute. Leaflets 7-21. Flowers bright red in short racemes 3-6 flowers. 


It could be Indigofera colutea.


seems to match with images of Indigofera colutea

I think this is Indigofera suffruticosa Mill.


To me images look different from the images at Indigofera colutea Indigofera suffruticosa
