The fruit seems the match Alysicarpus hamosus but the leaf shape and lack of stem covered by bristles is not matching.
Alysicarpus species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)
Erect, leaves linear, standard faint pink, sometimes yellow, pods distantly paired, this belong to Alysicarpus bupleurifolius.
It looks Alysicarpus bupleurifolius var. gracilis (Edgew.) Baker -as the leaves are linear, oblong, glabrous acute. flower yellow with pink tinge, pod smooth.
Want to share an observation:
Last October I saw this plant species where the upper (younger) leaves were linear-oblong whereas the lower (older) were ovate (L:B ratio was much lower) on the same plant.
Comments welcome.
