Dear Sir,
 
Your plant is Drynaria cordata. This is also known as bird's nest fern.
 
Regards

Reply from Susmita ji:
"This looks very much like Drynaria quercifolia or the oak-leaf fern (Quercus being the generic name of Oak). At what elevation was it found? Generally D. Cordata are found at an elevation of 4000 ft in Nilgiris and the Western ghat wheras D. quercifoliais common all over the country in low elevations from sea-level. In Kolkata and nearby regions it is found on old moist walls as well as trees.
