I would do it in Octubar, cut a branch let it dry for three to four days and plant as cutting, water sparingly.

Thank you for your response. May i ask, whether it is necessary to plant cutting in october and whether drying the cutting before planting is necessary? Thank you

Based on my knowledge and experience, that is the best.
You may plant the cuttings after the rains but drying for a few days is a must.
