Small, cultivated plant seen at the exhibition.
Not very sure, but it was in the medicinal plants section.
Id please.
Looks like Geranium
I thought of Geranium too.
Seems to be Scented Geranium on searching.
Yes Pelargonium
This plant can also be Pelargonium graveolens
Or can it be Pelargonium citronellum as per another thread ? 
Looks different from images of Pelargonium citronellum at

There are five different Pelargonium species with lemon scent:  
  1. Pelargonium crispum (P.J. Bergius) L'Hér.
  2. Pelargonium citronellum J.J.A. Van der Walt
  3. Pelargonium × melissimum Sweet
  4. Pelargonium × nervosum Sweet
  5. Pelargonium citrosum Voigt ex Sprague 
Most common species in trade are: 
  1. Pelargonium crispum (P.J. Bergius) L'Hér. [The leaves are lemon-scented, fan-shaped and the leaf margins are crisped]
  2. Pelargonium citronellum J.J.A. Van der Walt [The leaf is palmately shaped with sharply pointed lobes]
  3. Pelargonium citrosum Voigt ex Sprague [marketed as "mosquito plant" 'Citronella plant']

This id seems to be wrong. 
It looks like Geranium Species to me.
Experts, kindly give your opinion.
A similar plant was posted by me from 'Friends of Trees' Exhibition earlier.
It seems Geranium graveolens (Lemon scented Geranium), a source of an essential oil used in perfumery.
Keep it in a drawing room for a nice fragrance.
Did you mean Pelargonium graveolens as per images herein or other similar Pelargonium species?
Yes, ... Pelargonium graveolens
... is right, this is not Citronella should be Pelargonium citronellum J.J.A. Van der Walt due to its lemon like fragrances.

Thanks for going thro' this post and providing the correct id.
I believe the one seen at 'Friends of Trees' Exhibition in Mumbai could also be the same.
I am posting my plant of Pelargonium graveolens separately, which I had procured  a few years back from Dr. Y.S. Parmar University of Horticulture and was growing at my home.
