Lysimachia alternifolia from Tiger fall area Chakrata:  Lysimachia alternifolia Wall., Roxb. Fl. Ind., ed. Carey & Wall. ii. 26 (1824)
The plant at first look reminds you of Anagallis with similar long axillary pedicels and shape of fruits surrounded by similar calyx lobes, but alternate leaves and yellow flowers lead to look you for some thing closer, and it landed me to Lysimachia alternifolia very distinct from other species in alternate leaves, long slender pedicels and yellow flowers.
