Yes Seems V. pilosa (syn: V. serpens). Alok ji I must compliment you for really nice flowers. In future please always remember to take one close up of insertion of leaf on stem. In viola stipules are a great help. In this species they are entire or toothed but never fringed (found in V. canescens).

Thank you Gurcharan ji and Pankaj ji for confirmations... And also
thanks Gurcharan ji for the pointer.. actually I had taken a close-up
photo of the leaf.. just did not come out right.. since I use a very old
nikon (2100) with a hand lens in front of it instead of camera lens for
close-ups...
sincere regards
Alok
