Very close to Dicanthium annulatum


But nodes are glabrous…


please check Dichanthium caricosum or Dichanthium aristatum.

Grass for ID
At kanakeshwar, Alibag
Local Marathi name: Tel gavat


May be Dichanthium annulatum


Agree with Dichanthium annulatum


Dichanthium caricosum (D.annulatum will have annular hairs around the nodes, whereas nodes of D.c. are hairless)
