Thanks Tanayji but I identified as M. baumii and the reson is that in
M.surculosa the anthers are greenish which doesn't appear in my
plants.

Dear Tanay and Amit ji
I have checked from both Cacti-Illustrated Dictionary and Illustrated Encyclopedia of Cacti and Hortus Third. Both have yellow anthers. The main differentiating character is long reddish-brown central spine hooked at tip in M. surculosus. In M. baumii central spine is absent. On that count the plant looks like M. baumii, although we can not discount any other species.

Sorry for my conclusion
It is M. surculosa as central spine is prominently seen.
It was typing error on my part.
