I have finally got around to research and narrow down the fern I collected on Sunday to a Woodwardia. Dr Khullar says that there is only one species of Woodwardia found in India and that is Woodwardia unigemmata. I can be wrong in my identification, of course, but I did not find any other fern that resembles my sample in Dr Khullar’s book (both volumes).
I did not get home till late in the evening with my sample and had to photograph it under artificial light for which I apologise. I should have carried my camera on the walk.
Woodwardia unigemmata (a common English name for the Woodwardia sp. is Chain Fern)

Yes, that’s Woodwardia unigemmata – a very characteristic species. The Americans might call it “chain fern”!
