This was found in the fields of masoor near Saptashrungi, Nashik, MH in Feb 2017.
Also attaching a pic of the field where it was found.
Requested to please ID.

Rungia (now under Justicia) species. Pl. Check images in efi site. 
I think Justicia pectinata only as per images herein.
Yes!I guess it correct !
Thank you ... for feedback.
However, this looks much bigger than the J. pectinata that I had seen at Velas here.
These could be Rungia repens (Justicia repens) although it is hard to judge the size.

Thanks ... for inputs. The length could be around 5-6 inches.
I think this should be Justicia repens with bracts being uniform and not dimorphic. 

Yes, J. repens
Thanks so much ... for sorting out this ID. This matches with the ID suggested by ... as well.

Justicia repens !!! : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (17)
White flowered Justicia repens ? recorded today, (04 01 2020 morning) in Surat, 
Presenting for deliberation. Nearby coexisting purple flowered plants too ! 
Spikes are small to medium, leaves too small to medium ... some variation in bract size too . . . it has nothing to do with color. 
Dissected purple flower, bracteoles, calyx are shown too! 

Few more photos 
3 images.
Thanks, ..., for the wonderful presentation.
I agree with your id.

Herb for ID please: Attaching photos of a herb fond growing in the wild along the edge of a paddy field on the outskirts of Chennai.
My first guess was Antirrhinum sp. by the bracts seem to point more to an Acanthaceae plant. unfortunately I do not have any more information on the plant other than these two photos. 
-  to me it looks like some Rungia sp, may be Rungia repens.
- To me also it resembles more to Rungia sps. Found in abundance in the Chotta-Udepur forests of Gujarat.
- Yes, I have seen Rungia repens and Rungia sp looks likely to me. 
   Specially after I checked out Rungia repens more carefully:though only with naked eye.  It appears to have two pairs of bracts, one greenish and one yellowish-green,  slightly mis-aligned so that it looks like a pair of bracts with bi-colored edge.
    But I I think Rungia repens has very small flowers, about 5 mm or less and and a flat lower lip. The plant in question was larger and flowers as I remember were about 8 to 10 mm. with distinctly recurved and bumpy labia.
    So I think it may have to stay in the "insufficient data" category until it get spotted again by someone.

I think this should be Justicia repens as per images and details herein. 

Yes sir, absolutely !!
Thanks ..., … for confirmed ID.
Yes, it is Justicia repens, synonym of Accepted name (as per PL2) Rungia repens (L.) Nees.
Bracts were unique.
Following K Sasidharans description (KP): Bracts winged both sides with whitish margins, all similar. Apparently two rows not having flowers, so sterile.
Location was Chennai, edge of paddy field, similar as reported by Arti Khale and PKA(foi)
