Here is a reply from Rani Bhagat ji:
"I think this is pteridophyte Pleopeltis"

Thank you Rani ji and Garg ji.
Pteridophyte pleopeltis shown at flickr.com/photos/alan_cressler/2253529292/ is quite different from the one I had posted.
 
Attaching the image again.

Hi, Suresh ji,
The pteridophytes are vascular plants (plants with xylem and phloem) that neither flower nor produce seeds, hence they are called vascular cryptogams. Instead, they reproduce and disperse only via spores as per link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pteridophyte

While Pleopeltis is the genus, which includes many species, including Pleopeltis polypodioides as stated in your link, as per link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleopeltis

Nice pix of the ferns, Suresh.  Did you take a close-up pix of the yellow spots on the rocks in the background in both the pix . Appears to be rust/fungus. ID anyone.  (Sorry for late response due to backlog )
