The species of plums look similar from leaves. Perhaps if there are some photographs of fruit, the species of Prunus could be identified.

I agree with you Gurcharan ji. and Thanks for the reply
So far nobody has posted the picture of this tree on the group(I suppose). We as moderator want as much trees posted on the group as possible. So I just posted this image. Ideally I would have loved to capture better picture of the tree but unfortunately the time when we were close to this tree was late evening and the light was not good. So just a documentation shot of the genus.
My idea of posting a plant on the group is to generate some response and thus stimulate the discussion which helps all.
It is expected to have some response from somebody with a good photograph or information about the  species if one has any ; as has been done by you promptly.
Thanks again.

Hi, Satish ji and Garg ji
It can't be Prunus persica which has much narrower pubescent leaves. I am not naming species because in Kashmir I had collected several species of plums (pulp adhering to stone or loose, colour of fruit green or purple, shape of fruit). All have broad glossy leaves as in this tree.
