Really a very good find … wait for validating comments !!
Thank you sir. The only thing I thought differentiated this from Sonerila scapigera was the presence of hair on the leaves whereas S. scapigera should have glabrous leaves.

Sonerila primuloides (Melastomataceae) ?
Sonerila primuloides is the call from me
I could not find on net that Sonerila primuloides is found in India.
For me it appears like images of Sonerila wallichii Benn.
Looks like a Sonerila sp. (Melastomataceae).
I could not find any match for Sonerila wallichiana on google search.
I think there is some mistake here.
There is one species i.e. Sonerila wallichii
Sorry, … is correct, it is Sonerila wallichii
