Dinesh ji
You seem to have exceptional eyesight. I could not make out whether the tree has simple or compound leaves. We may request Suvarna ji to send a closeup of atleast one branch, with some information on flowers and fruits of the tree.

Dear Suvarna ji
Not to discourage you but while sending a picture try to check that at least one character of the plant is visible. A flower is the most useful character; if not leaves/fruit etc A close up shot of any of these is most welcome.
Otherwise it is just guessing of IDs.

Hi, 

as I can see large yellow flowers (see in the green background) and cordiform leaves, i presume it could be Thespesia populnea. The usual shape of canopy has been changed due to pruning, i think.

Hi Ms.Suvarna,
 It looks like the Sacred Barna [Cratavea tapia] locally called Vavarun.
