No this is not Vanda coerulea.
This could be either some hybrid or very close to Vanda coerulescens.

Dear Mr. Vijay,
V. coerulea will have those dark blue tessellated markings on the light blue or whitish petals and sepals, which will be absent in V. coerulescens.

Could you please tell me the difference between Vanda coerulea and coerulescens - just out of interest. What are the points to identify an orchid as V.coerulea ?

Hi, Pankaj ji,
Earlier you have identified it differently as per thread(https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/f659bf9e84a5edcc?hl=en#):
  
"No this is not Vanda coerulea.
This could be either some hybrid or very close to Vanda coerulescens.
Pankaj "
 
"V. coerulea will have those dark blue tessellated markings on the light blue
or whitish petals and sepals, which will be absent in V. coerulescens.
