Dryopteris stewartii Fraser-Jenk., Kalikasan 7: 272 (1979) ;
Afghanistan to W. Nepal: Afghanistan, Nepal, Pakistan, West Himalaya as per POWO;

Identification required for Dryopteris sp. From Ganderbal kashmir: 3 high res. images.

For me.. It resembles with Dryopteris stewartii

This is very nice Dryopteris stewartii, a triploid apomictic, West Himalayan endemic (To N.W. India and N. Pakistan) which was first discovered by some young, now old chap from Wales near Murree in 1977.
I wish I had it growing in my fern garden here in Portugal, but not much chance of that!
