I have also seen this in Ooty long back.   If I recall my memory it is possibly be :  Syntrichia ruralis, commonly known as twisted moss and star moss.    Not sure.

Sir
Sorry for the delay.
If the moss contains hyaline hair point at the apex of the leaf then it can be Syntrichia.
But I have not seen any hyaline hair point in these pictures so I am not sure about the identity of the species as Syntrichia.
The moss is a member of the Pottiaceae family and it may be a member of the genus Hydrogonium.
Thanking you sir
Regards 
Pamela

No doubt it resembles Syntrichia ruralis. But for correct identification of a species please see microscopic details like leaf lobe, its cellular details.
