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.

Indigofera glandulosa var. sykesii (mixed thread): 2 posts by 1 author 
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 ..red as usual.
Petiole 1.2 cm Leaflets 1.5cm Terminal leaflet with petiolule 3mm.
Pods 2-3 mm Globular. I think this one is...
Indigofera glandulosa var. sykesii
Herbs. Trifoliate : Leaflets elliptic obovate, nigro punctuate beneath. Racemes elongated upto 1 cm long. Pods globose, 2.5 mm across with very short wings.

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

This herb was photographed at "Ajinkyatara Fort, Satara".

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.
Some Indigofera species as per ... in another thread.
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
