Looks close!

C. diphylla ssp. murreana

Do we have any records from India before ?

Not sure. And the photo is a bit intermediate between the types of the recognised subspecies.

The variation may be more complicated than apparent from the current division into three subspecies.
I have seen too few live plants from NW India to be certain. Maybe your web-forum could shed more light on this.
