This straggler with succulent leaves was recorded from Succulents and Cactii Garden, Panchkula..
Flowers yet to open, please provide id inputs.. 

do you think this might very well be a kalachoe..
one of several sp that may be grows naturally in the rocky crevasses?
I would have loved to have seen fully opened flowers, so would you I’m sure.
Since its a garden plant may be you could do a follow up?

Thanks …, I too imagined if this can belong to Crassulaceae, probably I will plan a revisit very soon…

Just a guess…. Cissus Species….could be C. rotundifolia?

Could this be a variant Kalanchoe-Beharensis. Please check this link—Kalanchoe-Beharensis
