Sorry. I mentioned it as angiosperms, because that was the description for another picture. This is as you can see, a fern.
it’s a fern (Pteridophyte) not an Angiosperm. It is Hypolepis resistens, known in India only from the south- in the north it is replaced by the common and less dissect Hypolepis polypodioides – Dennstaedtiaceae.
Thank you …, for the ID. I added the description for another photo. I accidentally added another picture

You really need to get hold of a modern book on Indian ferns, not 19th Century ones! Also check the spellings of names properly. The genus you intended was Lastrea, not Lassea. But Lastrea is a synonym of Thelypteris and does not apply to the Dryopteridaceous fern, Dryopsis scabrosa – different families.
