Observed this small tree on one of the hills in Pune ( Warje area). There are almost 10-15 trees of this species on the same contour line of this hill. White flowers were attracting lots of bees.

Observed in May 2021
Height -12-14 feet
Flowers- while, fragrant

I think it is Ehretia laevis
Kindly confirm.
 ( apologies for not good pics, I had only mobile with me then )

  The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

It is an Ehretia sp. for sure. Hard to determine the species without ascertaining the texture of the leaves. If the leaves happen to be rough & hairy, it would be E. aspera, which occurs wild in Pune.

Best wishes, Viplav

Yes, you're right Neha Ma'am, it's Ehretia laevis but now it's synonym to aspera as suggested Viplav Ji,
With regards.

Went again to the plant location for pictures of leaves. Found fruits too this time.  Hope these pictures would help in id confirmation.

To me it is Ehretia laevis, as per images and details herein. 
It is different from images and details at Ehretia aspera
This is accepted by Catalogue of Life as per CoL 1 and CoL2
However, POWO's interpretation of E. laevis Roxb. being a syn. of E. aspera Willd. as per link, is not correct.
