Can it be some Salsola species of Amaranthaceae ?  

My correct suggestion, which had ended up being included in the previous post, which has 3 (not 2) images, also from Sangam but clearly do not belong to Amaranthanceae (previously Chenopodiaceae). 

Another one I am struggling – very speculatively Chenopodiaceae (as the family was)?

Perhaps even the Salsola (now Kali) I suggested for the other specimens from this location? Which is what … is also suggesting.

Did not find any match as suggested.

Just a guess: Elaeoselinum tenuifolium (Lag.) Lange (accepted name)

Does not match your guess with images at

This species look like Mattiastrum thomsonii of Boragenaceae. But I am not sure this is also confusing with Mathiola flavida species of Brassicaceae.

This looks like Salsola tragus.

Does not look like Salsola tragus . No spines !

It is Corispermum species. For the exact ID, the fruits are needed, but it seems to be C. tibeticum aggregate due to pilose stems and leaves. Hopefully it helps.
