This is from old collection and only images.

Tried all listed in EFN but no luck.

Sir once check with Symphyotrichum subulatum 

It looks exact match but it is not listed in Nepal neither any synonym. No specimen collected.

then newly invading .. its a weed. may be you can publish it. get together with your local botanists

Did not have specimen

We also have one Symphyotrichum novi-belgii in efi. Pl. check.

That is not matching … As far as I remember the size of flower is around one cm. or less in diameter.

Thanks, …, for the id.
To me also appears close as per images at
