Kindly help with identification of this cultivated species of Cotyledon.
Place: Hamirpur

most likely crasssula dubia

Crassula dubia is now correctly known as Crassula cotyledonis, but then it raises question about how to differentiate it from Kalanchoe thyrsiflora 

Please see my post and link there in

thank you
many shops even at bot gardens continue to call them crassula dubia… nice to know the latest

Without flower it is impossible to select one between the two suggested id(s). Yet I would select K. thyrsiflora Harv., for its emarginate leaf apex (and relatively less fleshy?).

Kalanchoe thyrsiflora Harv. ??  

Yes, may be Kalanchoe thyrsiflora Harv. as per image, references and details herein.
This species is quite confusing with Kalanchoe luciae,
Differences between the two are given at Platzafrica
