Your plant has rather short spur - maybe I. rosea
Same thought as ... Impatiens rosea.
I. rosea (syn. I. balsamina var. rosea) is more common in Deccan side of Western Ghats than I. balsamina var. balsamina ... I could be wrong.
Important points noticed in the discussion. I have to check spur in my collections.

I have collected this Impatiens from Mahendragiri hills, South Odisha from an altitude of 1200 m.
Please help me in identification. ... and ... may do the needful.
The spur is very short and it continues to be short till the plant dies unlike Impatiens balsemina whose spur is very long. It grows in plateaus above 1200 m.
I have attached detailed images with scales. Hope these images will be sufficient to reach any conclusion regarding species identification.
Impatiens rosea Lindl.

Yes, Impatiens rosea
I followed key by Dessai & Janarthanan.
Your plant match I. rosea well

Impatiens species from Amboli area SN1818 : 10 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3)
Wild tall under shrubs

It looks like I. balsamina. If the spur is shorter than the wings it is var. rosea.

I rosea Lindl. 

Thanks ..., I also referred Flora of Bombay, it is correct. 

Thanks, ... Which one out of the two? 

var. brevicalcarata T. Cooke, leaves reaching 6 inch long, spur short, stout, incurved.
