Dear Shubhada Ji,
I think this is Hymenodictyon orixense hopefully.
Kindly check.

Regards
Tanay

Hi Shubhada and Tanay,

I am sure this is  H. obovatum. The elliptic or obovate leaves, abruptly acuminate, clearly seen in the leaves, sessile flowers. Have mentioned these characteristics  a few days back to ID the same plant.  The other main distinguishing feature is the stipule with glandular margins. Attaching a pic. of the same from the same tree pics I had taken and also close up of flowers.  

regards,
Rashida.

 To me these appears more closer to images of Hymenodictyon orixense

This should be Hymenodictyon orixense (Roxb.) Mabb.
Kind regards,
Varun

It seems to be Hymenodictyon excelsum (syn. H. orixense). 
Thank you
