Vijayadas ji
I think you are right, it is S. molesta. The same plant also grows in Delhi, which has been reported as S. cucullata. Thanks for adding one more species to my knowledge.

 S. cucullats: Uppermost (floating) leaves entire at apex, to 1.2 cm long, broader than long with margins curving upwards and inwards; upper leaf surfaces with papillae in irregularly curved rows, the tips not joined.  Sporocarps form on the submerged, rootlike lower leaves. 

 This species is similar to S. molesta. The characters of S. molesta are leaves longer than broad with deeply indented leaf apices; the papillae hairs are joined at their tips to form a cage-like structure
