Perennial up to 50 cm tall, erect or ascending; Leaf-blade up to 15 cm long, up to 8 mm broad, upper sheaths slightly inflated; panicle compact up to 5 cm long, 7-12 mm broad, usually tinged with purple, ovoid; glumes truncate, with scarious margin, keel fringed, terminating in 1-3 mm long awn; lemma 2/3 as long as glumes, 3-5-nerved.

Nice Catch Sir, it looks similar to Phalaris minor a noxious weed in wheat field in our area
Yes ... That is a taller annual plant with longer and thicker inflorescence, green in colour. This one is perennial, with bluish green inflrescence with reddish tinge and smaller size. In fact another species Phleum himalaicum looks more similar to Phalaris minor.
