It is not an annual plant.
Corchorus is an undershrub. the stem and branches are not herbaceous as in other herbs. thiese are commonly found along the margin of lake
and ponds and along the nallah. for identification  just look for a fruit. that will definately identify the plant.
if you have the fruit pic or any other pic of this plant please provide.

It is Corchorus without any doubt, only fruit will help in species identification
It is on small hill in Semi-arid Zone. fruits just start. There is only 6 plants.
Corchorus depressus (L.) Stocks as per images herein.
