Dear Pravir ji/ Garg Ji,
This is not a fungus but a slime mold Lycogala terrestre. The colour ranges in this slimes from light flesh colour to bright red and even blackish red due to certain metabolic activity by they are all from same species.

Dear Tanay

It is not matching with the name you suggested,

Might be some different species.

Dear Prabir Ji,
 Tubifera sp is a genus of slime mold and not of angiospermic plant. Please see anywhere I hope you will know what you suggested.

Tanay

This looks like Tubifera ferruginosa, a genus of slime moulds (Myxomycetes). The sporangia in this are sessile, 5 mm tall, usually crowded, and form a pseudoaethalium, 15 cm or more in size.  Lincoff (1981) used the common name red raspberry slime for this species.
This is what can be observed from its morphology. We need to study ornamentations on the spores to further confirm.
