It is informed that doesn't any Polygala Species reported from here and not mention in keralaplants.in about this kind. Hence I have no idea about it. It is blooming in the place just points Reserve Forest Chathamattom in Google map when zoom.
Here I saw less than 50 plants, not seemed in inner wild range, I think it likes sunlight.

I guess Polygala javana DC !
Polygala javana is yellowish in colour and more than one flowers in a bunch or not clear bunch. But the said flower is whitish blue and only one flower in a bunch. 
Looks different from Polygala javana

Do you have the habit image, showing the full plant ?
I tried all species in Flora of Peninsular India, but could not find a match.
To me appears close to unidentified species at Polygala species- Assam
