Hi Dinesh,
    This looks like the 'Tree of Heaven' [Ailanthus exelca] locally called Maharukh / Maha-neem.
                     Regards,
                      Neil.

Yes its the Ailanthus, Tree of heaven, the Indian variety... though I
am mostly familiar with huge 50 to 80 year old Ailanthus
altissima...since it produces those uniquely flying whirling seeds by
the thousands and thousands each year it used to be considered highly
invasive until something started mysteriously killing stands of
it...and we discovered suddenly that we loved this tree after all.

Is it Maharookh?
Iylanthus sps?
Leaves are like neem but larger. In one picture the close up of fruits seen. The fruits look beautiful when grEen, shake with the wind and shine in sunlight

Many thanks to all for the ID: Ailanthus excelsa ... commonly known as: Coromandel ailanto, tree of heaven • Gujarati: અરડૂસો araduso, રૂખડો rukhdo • Hindi: जंगली सर्व jangli sarva, महानींब mahanimb, महारूख maharukh • Kannada: ದೊಡ್ಡಮರ doddamara, ಹೆಮ್ಮರ hemmara • Malayalam: പീമരം peemaram, പീനാറി peenari, പെരുമരം perumaram, പെരുപ്പി peruppi • Marathi: महारुख maharukh • Oriya: mundayigatch • Sanskrit: अटरूषकः atarusaka, महानिम्बः mahanimbah • Tamil: பெருமரம் peru-maram • Telugu: పెద్దమాను pedda-manu • Urdu: جنگلي سرو jungli sarva


Most of the trees that could be observed in and around Madikeri had entire-edged leaflets, therefore was wondering if it could be some other species of Ailanthus.


Regards.

This is Ailanthus triphysa (Dennst.) Alston syn. A. malabarica DC. A.
excelsa is a plant of dry areas while A. triphysa is an evergreen
tree.
Leaflets coarsely toothed is A. excelsa and leaflets entire is A.
triphysa. Yes, this tree is used for roadside plantation in
Karnataka.

Please see the earlier link posted by me. This tree is very common
in Mysore city. There are nearly 4-5 trees nearby my house.
