Indigofera to me also but i am not confident in trita. the habit is seems to be different. There are two varieties; Indigofera trita var. marginulata and Indigofera trita var. trita based on fruit character
Please check
Why not Indigofera trifoliata?
The terminal leaflet is sessile here as against stalked in* I. trita*?
I have captured similar plant from closer by area. Will upload separately.
Indigofera glandulosa J. C. Wendl. a very common plant around Pune grasslands in Aug-Sept.

I am deliberately adding this species in the same thread.
I Observed two types of trifoliate leaved Indigoferas in an area Pune. The second one has findings as above followed by the description from BSI Flora.
Stem smooth red brown. Flowers not observed when seed pods spotted as the season was over but I remember spotting flowers similar to I.glandulosa as usual.
Petiole 1.2 cm Leaflets 1.5cm Terminal leaflet with petiolule 3mm.
Pods 2-3 mm Globular. I think this one is...

I think it has both Indigofera glandulosa var. glandulosa & var. sykesii as per A revision of trifoliolate Indigofera (Tribe Indigofereae: Fabaceae) in India - Vibha Chauhan, Arun Pandey - Phytotaxa  Vol 220, No 1 (2015)- a copy of which I have marked to you separately in Dec.'15.
If anyone still want it I can send it to him again.
It is Indigofera glandulosa with two varieties
one seeded variety is I. glandulosa var. sykesii.......Photographs no. b7,b8
2-3 seeded variety is I. glandulosa........................Remaining photographs,05.jpg?part=0.1&view=1&vt=ANaJVrGRkCB9kbvh0PTPENuVCVJSoUly3qWKKQrte-2LGJYWrB0dHQXK3CUPNT27rif-OJwUkZrPncOpHslTYNpH2ZFsFujSv60q1Tx_OtUEiGrr6Y9lVks

A reply from another thread:
To me, the pictures in your post here look like Indigofera trifoliata. The pods are winged and the lower-surface of the leaves should have minute reddish gland-dots.

I think closer to images at Indigofera glandulosa Wendl. 
Thanks very much, ... I too think it to be Indigofera glandulosa. If anyone familiar with trifoliate Indigofera spp. gives us a similar thought, I will revise my notes

Three leaf Indigo??? : 4 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (3)
I saw this little bush in our society garden.
I doubts this is either indigofera-glandulosa or Indigofera trifoliata.
As yet it didn't  have any flowers.
Location- Kothrud, Pune. (our society is near Mhatoba tekadi paytha)
photo taken on Date- 10 September 2020 
I read the previous threads about these two species but was not able to get the distinct difference between these two. (as I am not a botanist) . Can experts please explain it again.

Indigofera species 
It's very close to glandulosa rather than trifoliata ...,  
Let's wait for flowering and fruting,
I would go with I. glandulosa

Thanks a Lot team !
Now it has started flowering..
