After much speculation with a friend, I am still questioning wether my plant is a khasiana at all. I have seen many plants labelled as N.khasiana on the internet from all over the world.
I don't even have a Nepenthes book with a photo of N.khasiana so I am finding it difficult to determine its actual identity. The fringed wings are not as prominent in this one as it is in photos on the net. Is that primarily due to wether the plant is a juvenile compared to a mature one? Other reasons are below.
Here are a couple of photos of different pitchers:

I have had this plant for five years now and its very self satisfying to see it grow into what it has today ( I remeber when it was a small stick with a few leaves. hehe.). I have found in the recent four pitchers it has produced a 'V' shape cut in the top of the lid that appears asymmetrical as shown in this photo:

As shown in photo 3, photo 4 below shows the reason why it is producing this 'V' shape. It seems that as the pitcher develops, the middle lower lip of the peristome pushes inwards and as the lid opens, this results in the cut on the lid. Is this common or mainly because of the conditions it is growing in?
This one grows in full sun outside and is very frost tolerant.

It has the common features such as the red strip under the persitome. Any help would be appreciated.
