Adding my pics for confirmation ..., these were recorded from Morni Hills, Haryana....Senegalia modesta?
Thanks, ...  To me these look close. 
Thank you very much for sharing these images.
There are only a few collections available in CAL indicating that this is a rare species (possibly abundant in some localities of Punjab).
This was originally described by Wallich  in 1831 from a cultivated plant in the Calcutta Botanic Garden, presumably introduced from Saharanpur and described again two times in 1832 by Roxburgh as Mimosa dumosa.and M. obovata.
The specimens which I have seen are from Delhi (cultivated), Punjab (Saharanpur), Shimla and Rajasthan (Churru district). It extends to Pakistan and Afghanistan. Southwards, this has been described from Tamil Nadu as Acacia tanjorensis.
