Pl helpt me to ID this sub-shrub of Acanthaceae
Observed at Yelagiri Hills at a height of 600 ft.

... just a guess, could be some Strobilanthes.
If so,  pl. Check comparative images in efi site 
Thank you ... I also think that it may some Strobilanthes sp.
I did not find any match from the comparative images at Strobilanthes 
However, it comes close to the images at Strobilanthes anceps ?, but not the same. 

Looks like a Strobilanthes but I don't recognize the species. Where are the Yelagiri Hills?
Thanks, ... YELAGIRI HILLS ... At a distance of 230 km from Chennai, 178 km from Bangalore, 145 km from Yercaud and 94 km from Vellore, Yelagiri is a hill region in Vellore district of Tamil Nadu, located in between the towns of Vaniyambadi and Jolarpettai

It looks like Stenosiphonium only/ now under Strobilanthes sps, without detailed description it is difficult to conclude, stamens, bracts, calyx etc are important in this genus
It looks like Strobilanthes foliosus
Does not matches with images at Strobilanthes foliosa
It looks like Stenosiphonium setosum T.And; Reasons: A shrub; Leaves elliptic; flowers in dense spikes; bracts as long as calyx, calyx lobes glandular hairy
I think it looks somewhat different from images at Strobilanthes carinei (syn: Stenosiphonium setosum T.Anderson) posted by ... and specimens at GBIF and illustration in Flora of Karnataka

yes, it is, I agree with you
Also could not find any match as per as per
