Dear Rajuji,

I think this is Clematis gouriana Roxb. ex DC.

Regards,
Ritesh.

Although photos available on net doesn't match well with C. gouriana.
But illustration provided by Fl. China matches well with this plant.

There seems to be a mixed up of two plants. The 2nd photo belongs to
some other plant of Menispermaceae.

Further comments are solicited.

Regards,
Ritesh.

Thats because leaf doesnt belong to that plant.
This is a Ranunculaceaean member and very likely to be Clematis as
stated by Ritesh.

The first photograph does belong to Clematis, but species identification may not be possible without leaf. The second photograph belongs to a different plant, a simple leaved climber,  probably Tinospora.

Second plant seems like Cissampelos to me. Not Tinospora.

Hi,
 Agree with Prof.Singh. It is more likely to be a species of Tinospora.
                     With regards,
