Any idea about the family ?
Rosaceae…. could be a species of Sorbus
Did not find any matching to the elevation.
Seems like Stranvaesia nussia

I also have no idea what it could be but something about it reminds me of Kalmia. Are any Kalmia found in India?
Kalmia sp syn. Chamaedaphne not listed in Nepal and images
Is this too Cotoneaster affinis Lindl. ??
To me also appear close to your images at Cotoneaster affinis

New record to Indian flora I suppose!
Please check if the ID posted from Nepal is correct ?
yes sir, checked.
Please check the synonymy. I think, it is listed in the flora of Uttarakhand as well as FBI under Stranvaesia glaucescens.
It has got distribution in India according to the POWO, GBIF, CoL and IBP.
Yes, it is reported in Gaur, 1999 (Flora of the District Garhwal Northwest Himalaya). The citations in it show that species is also mentioned in Flora of Chamoli vol-1 by Naithani (1984). In The Flora of British India it is described at page 382 of Volume 2 under the name Stravensia glaucescens Lindl. Osmaston 1927 (A Forest Flora for Kumaon) also described it at page 221 under the same name Stravensia glaucescens Lindl. This shows that the species is mentioned under different names in different floras. Even in Uniyal et al. 2007 (Flowering Plants of Uttarakhand A Checklist) is listed under the name Photinia nussia (D.Don) Kalkman and same name is used in Rosaceae of Flora of Nepal.

Is it not the same as at
Any chance for
Check with Elaeocarpus sp,
Fruits look different.
Yes, looks different as per images at
Any chance of it being Photinia sp?
I think, as leaves are serrated, it should be
Pyracantha or Sorbus sp?. Some similarities I guess.
I tried matching with species posted in efloraofindia, but could not succeed.
Sorry ? The genus : Pyracantha, Sorbus & Stranvaesia are not found in my books.
Pyracantha crenulata (D.Don) M.Roem. ??
I think it looks different from the images at P.crenulata.
