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.

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

Please help for id

I think it would be Tectaria paradoxa

It is Woodwardia unigemmata

The fern may be Woodwardia radicans. Can you send me one close up photograph of sori alone (like one I have attached  herewith) so that I can confirm the identification.

The plant in the attached photo is Woodwardia radicans (Blechnaceae) with two rows of elliptical to oval sori flanking both sides of the mid-rib.
