Appears to have opposite leaves, which would be very unlike viola.
I can't see the flower clearly from the photos...
Do the flowers have 4 petals?

A legible display showing the phyllotaxy and number of petals would solve all doubts about the identity of the species.


If the plant displayed is Viola blanda,

Identification: Leaves basal and flowers located on separate stalks. Flowers white with 5 petals, fragrant, and with upper petals twisted at the apices. Leaves ovate to heart-shaped, basal indentation between leaf blade and leaf stalk narrow and deep.

If not, may be something else

For me it seems to look like Lunaria annua alba.....

I considered that as well, suse!
Clearer photos would help, but I think that it is highly likely.

Cruciform polypetalous corolla with four petals - Typical of Brassicaceae

No doubt this is Lunaria annua alba unknown in India
