Its an annual herb, around 20 to 80 cm, smells like turpentine. Whole Plant is pubescent, ash grey coloured.

Leaves are alternate, obvate, sharply serrate, obtuse, base tapered. Flowers are bright yellow.

 
 
As per efi thread :
FI notes, "It (B. laciniata syn. of B. sinuata ) differs from lacera, in having all the leaves laciniate and from terebinthinacea (???) in the inflorescence and flowers." FI doesn't mention any other difference. 
FI further records, 1) in laciniata stem is striate.. 2) in lacera stem erect, branchy, particularly near the ground; lower leaves are petioled, lyred; the superiors ones simply oval and many times smaller.

A herb at Mhasala, Maharashtra
Leaves and stem both are sticky

Blumea sp, I suppose
Any chance of it being B. lacera?
I think this is Blumea lacera
Looks different from images of Blumea lacera at
Flowers of India  Useful Tropical Plants  GBIF (With type specimens)  PICSSR 
Yes it is Blumea lacera 

Thanks, ... But Looks different from images of Blumea lacera at
Flowers of India  Useful Tropical Plants  GBIF (With type specimens)  PICSSR

Agree with ..., for Blumea lacera (Burm.f.) DC. as per images, details and references herein.
Identifying Asteraceae members by these type of photographs is really a challenge; one has to look the specimen in detail, hence there may be some errors, even some reputed websites also differ, the herbarium specimens sometimes may not given a clear picture. I am not an expert in Asteraceae

Blumea

Just a wild guess  Blumea aurita (L.f.) DC ????
I do not think it matches with images at Blumea viscosa (Mill.) V.M.Badillo (syn: Blumea aurita (L.f.) DC. )
Plant Detail ?? Any match ?
To me appears close to Blumea lacera (Burm.f.) DC. as per images, details and references herein.
Thank you ...!
Nepali Names : कुकुरे Kukure/ कुकुरद्र Kukuradra/  कुकुर घाँस Kukur Ghaas/ थाङ्गने Thaangne/  थाङ्गने झार Thaangne Jhaar/ बुगी Bugee/ कोपिले झार Kopile Jhaar 
Thanks very much … for the Nepali names of the plant - so many names - certainly must be ethno-botanically popular in the region.
Thank you ..., Yes, I guess so !

"Bengal Plants" has 13 Blumea, of which we should have -
  1. B. amplectens DC. = a small bushy herb
  2. B. bifoliata DC. = do
  3. maybe B. oxyodonta DC. = a slender decumbent herb
  4. B. wightiana DC. = with purplish corolla (plz. note The Plant List differs)
  5. B. glomerata DC. = Conyza fistulosa Roxb. = a rather slender, erect, much branched herb
  6. B. lacera DC.
  7. B. laciniata DC.
  8. B. membranacea DC. = Conyza diffusa Roxb. = a tall, erect, usually much branched herb
I note some info on the last one, Blumea membranacea DC. - 
While B. membranacea DC. in FBI (vol3, p265) is "common throughout India", Conyza diffusa Roxb. of FI (vol3, p429) is "a native of Bengal" !!!
The Plant List recognizes the above as two different taxa -
Can this be Conyza diffusa Roxb.?
efi page on Blumea paniculata (Syn. Conyza diffusa Roxb.)
This is surely not Blumea paniculata of eFI.
To me appears close to Blumea lacera (Burm.f.) DC. as per images, details and references herein.

Pl. also see … post at Hooghly : Blumea? yet another

This one does look very similar to that in … post, and does look like B. lacera.
Thank you very much … for combing the Blumea posts.
I earnestly hope more of those who are familiar with Blumea spp. come forward and express their thoughts.
Thanks, … Blumea's are really really difficult. I never got the courage to look at them for a long long time.
But finally I took the plunge and have been working on these for last five days.
I am now getting the clarity on this genus.
Hope more experts come up and take revision of different genera in efi site.
There are too many variations in sizes of leaves as well as plant heights, they confuse me easily, never could get familiar with almost any of them.
Regular field visitors should be able to help us sort the IDs.
yes it looks like Blumea lacera
