There seems to be no native name for it in the western music, and when I played it at the piano, it sounded foreign, despite my love for chromaticism. The closest is indeed a double harmonic scale, although the feel is very different when that F is natural.

I would call it "C byzantine sharp four"

Edit: the scale finder suggests a name "C purvi theta"

But that's an imported name

There are 10 basic scales in Hindustani music, 6 of which are the diatonic modes (sorry no Locrian ragas) the other 4 dont have a counterpart in standard Western music. Poorvi (from the eponymous raag you mentioned) is one of them
