I assume, this is Murraya koenigii?
I am growing one for years here in NJ/USA, never letting it dry out and protecting it in Summer from hot, noon time sun. In your climate I would surely move it into a more protected spot and water plenty. Can you hang up a screen of sorts on your balcony?

Would you recommend keeping it indoors. As the temperature outside will increase in coming days? I dont let it dry and water it everyday

Different problem: the leaves are a light green color, except for the leaf veins which remain dark green. That is a sign of iron chlorosis where soil minerals are lost because of the daily waterings. So water only if the soils feels dry to the touch. Some plants wilt when it is hot but recover by themselves if the soil is kept moist. But watering when the soil is already moist would be over-watering.

Luis, hopefully you are aware the op talks about ca 110 degr F, right? Smiling I doubt that the soil stays ever moist ....
