Chrysanthemum indicum cultivar/hybrid-- Garden Mum. (No idea of a cultivar name, though.)
Yes ..., you seem to have got the right answer. This was lying unidentified for a long time.

FWIW, Wikipedia can occasionally be of use, especially if too much detail isn't needed (ie: the cultivar name).

When I was a kid in Southern California, USA, these only bloomed in fall, after daylength dropped to a certain # of hours. Nowadays, I see them as bedding plants blooming here in the heat (and long days) of mid-summer. But I still haven't learned the cultivar names...
In Marathi it is called Shevanti, is it?
Yes ..., you are right, in Marathi we call it Shevanti.  During the winter we get it plenty in the flower markets.
