Please help me in identifying this medium-sized grass. The leaves are hairy and slightly leathery.
My picture quality gets reduced drastically and it becomes very difficult to identify; so only sending large sized file; apologies for this.
Habitat: hill slopes
Alt.: 400 m asl
Date: 24.01.2018
Place: Jammu (outskirts, rural), J & K

I think Eriophorum comosum 

Agree with … Not a grass but a member of Cyperaceae.

Many thanks for identifying this Cyperaceae

It seems to be Erioscirpus comosus (Wall.) Palla =Eriophorum comosum (Wall.) Nees
