can we say that the torque due to a magnetic field is independent of the position of axis of rotation as torque = cross producty of area vector and magnetic field. so it does not depemd upon the distance from any fixed axis (as the position vector does not appear in the torque formula !!) am i thinking correct

torque is independent of axis is the magnetic field is uniform or the net magnetic force on the body is zero.and yes you are thinking correct provided the above mentioned conditions are satisfied
