This thread shows very different picture for same species 
This was identified for me by ... at the time. And I did not have time to observe this species closely at the time as I was part of a butterfly survey there.
The other taxon mentioned by ...- Peristrophe montana Nees seems to be distinct from Dicliptera montana Lindau.
The former is mentioned in the following floras and the descriptions are as follows-
Flora of Palghat- Erect herbs; leaves elliptic, acuminate; flowers pale pink, in cymes, bracts 2, conspicuous, leafy, elliptic, glabrous/sparesly hairy; corolla tube twisted; filaments pubescent.
Flora of Cannanore (Kannur, the district in which this plant was clicked)- erect undershrub; leaves elliptic, acuminate; flowers pink, in axillary and terminal cymes.
I do not think I have clicked all the details of the plant, I do not have the features of the calyx and the inflorescence of the plant was still young.
Further Dicliptera montana Lindau is not found in India as per Tropicos & efi page
