Altitude: 2200 meters asl
GPS: 33.36 N and 76.22 E
Plant habit/habitat: Wild herb
Plant height: 30-50 cms

for me it is Galinsuga parviflora, a member of asteraceae family.
Seen a similar one in Nashik Maharashtra just a month back
it seems to be a member of family asteraceae
with the very limited knowledge i have it seems to be either
1. Tridex parviflora
2. Bidens pilosa
would like to confirm
Yes Galinsoga parviflora, but ... why do you write shrub in subject line when you know (in your information) that it is a herb.
Yes I agree with ... In the habitat you have mentioned it as wild herb but in the subject line you call it as a shrub. If one is not sure one can say as a plant for ID. Probably you may not have noticed this small error. Anyway thanks for showing this plant from your region...

Jawa Asteraceae 2: We need your help to ID our Compositae please.
i hope Galinsoga parviflora
Is it Tridax?
Not Tridax ..., in which leaves are thicker, smaller, alternate and much hairy; heads are larger, on long erect peduncles and ray florets larger.
Galinsoga parviflora from me too...
