Would be grateful if you could help me identify this Indigofera species. Sorry for the poor pictures.
Habit: small herb
Height: 20-25 cm
Habitat: semi-evergreen forest edge (road-side)
Date: 18 March 2015
Location: Manimuthar Dam, Tirunelveli dist, TN

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

Indigofera colutea

I think this is Indigofera suffruticosa Mill. 

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