Some Dichrocephala species.
D. integrifolia ??
Thanks, ..., But to me it does not match with the existing images. But I don't know if such variation is their in this species. 

Appears closer to Dichrocephala integrifolia (L.f.) Kuntze as leaves seems quite variable as per FOC
Col. Collett in Flora Simlensis lists D. integrifolia with stalked leaves and D. chrysanthemifolia with sessile leaves. 
Appears to be Dichrocephala benthamii based on leaf attachment as per FOC illustration
On further review, it may be Dichrocephala chrysanthemifolia (Blume) Candolle as per
Specimen 1  Specimen 2  GBIF  POWO  FoC illustration Useful Tropical plants
Yes ...,  D. chrysanthemifolia without any doubt, expanded basal auricles are clearly seen in second and third image.

Dichrocephala benthamii C.B.Clarke ??

Appears similar to images at 

Yes. Appears close to the given link. 

The link which I sent ? D. benthamii ??

You sent some 400 by 600 link. Which is that species? 

That is D. benthamii 

Ok

I think D. benthamii only, the spherical head and characteristic basal auricles of D. chrysanthemoides are missing. See this cropped image

Read D. chrysanthemoides as D. chrysanthemifolia 

I think D. benthamii only, the spherical head and characteristic basal auricles of D. chrysanthemifolia are missing. See this cropped image  

Thanks, ...
I think it is Dichrocephala chrysanthemifolia (Blume) Candolle only as per GBIF specimen
Basal auricles may not be that prominent in smaller plants and upper leaves.
Flower heads are different from Dichrocephala benthamii
