Here is an earlier thread showing another Celastraceae member.This shrub doesn't have thorns and looks like Maytenus senegalensis locally called as Henkal in Marathi.

Maytenus rothiana also known as Bhalwand. Its different than Henkal ie M. senegalensis, with red petiole. M. rothiana is found in higher rainfall regions of ghats than M. senegalensis.
While ID 34 SMP 26 Feb 09 looks more of Flacourtia sp. Most common is F. Montana - commonly known as Tambat.
