Looks different from images at Magnolia figo (Lour.) DC. and as per references at
May be Magnolia liliiflora Desr.
It is Magnolia figo var. figo. It was earlier known as M. fasciata.
Neither the flowers nor the buds match with Magnolia figo.
It is growing at Indian Institute of Advanced Studies, Shimla where many exotic plants have been introduced either by Britishers or by the Institute. According to them, it is Magnolia fasciata, with accepted name, what I had written.
If not this, then the nearest match will be Magnolia × soulangiana.
But, that also looks different.
Let’s explore for new ID.
Magnolia has sooooo many variances its hard to argue one way or the other , esp sitting at the computer. but love your series of pictures
