From the twisted overlapping appearance of the petals it is a member of the Apocynaceae family. So I searched for "Apocyanaceae india" and found images consistent with your picture. Good chance it is Allamanda blanchetii or Purple Allamanda. Here is a picture comparable to yours (source/CC0).

Here's a bit about the plant and Wikipedia has a short page.
