This is the Grey Pansy Butterfly (Junonia atlites) a species of Nyphalid butterfly found in South Asia.

This one here is seen sitting and nectaring on the Lantana flowers which seems to be a fovoured flower for a lot of other butterfly species.

The photo was taken in almost mid-day sun and lightly cropped.
