This looks ​more like Cyclocodon parviflorus (Wall. ex DC.) Hook f. & Thomson (syn.: Campanumoea parviflora (wall. ex. A. DC.) Benth. to me. Link
Please check carefully with literature and your specimens.

The plant seems to be Cyclocodon lancifolius

Matches more with Cyclocodon parviflorus (Wall. ex DC.) Hook f. & Thomson (syn.: Campanumoea parviflora (wall. ex. A. DC.) Benth. as per link given by …:

I think … is right, C. lancifolius
C. parviflorus: Flowers often 4-merous; calyx inserted on pedicel, distant from other floral parts by 1-4 mm, like involucral bracts.
C. lancifoliusFlowers usually 5- or 6-merous; calyx at least partly adnate to ovary

Stem erect or ascending, branching, not hollow, milky juice present

These two species known in India (Cyclocodon lancifolius and C. parviflora) are mentioned under genus Campanumoea (C. lancifolia and C. parviflora) in Fascicles of Flora of India Fascicle-22, and differentiated as under:
Calyx adnate to ovary for a short length and to fruits up to the middle ….C.lancifolius.
Calyx entirely free from ovary, situated often on the pedicels ……. C. parviflora.
In the pics sepals are adnate to ovary indicating Cyclocodon lancifolius.

In the A Monograph of Codonopsis and Allied Genera (Campanulaceae) (2015), keys has been totally changed.
As per this, it should be Cyclocodon lancifolius.
