Location:-  Bilikere

Image is not clear.
I found Bilikere is in Mysore district on searching.
May be some Indigofera

Sorry for poor image.
i think its similar to Caribbean stylo (Stylosanthes hamata (L.) Taub.)

In that case, appears more closer to Stylosanthesscabra Vogel rather than Stylosanthes hamata (L.) Taub.
but can not be sure with this image.

Much similar to Stylosanthesscabra Vogel
