This tree was found growing  plentifully in  vacant land, probably meant for a park,at  a colony in Bangalore.
It had light greenish-yellow flowers some months ago.
(The leaves  resembled the Milletia peguensis growing nearby.)
Is it related to it?
Please help with the id.

Thank -you all who have helped me with the id.
(And here I have been waiting anxiously for the seeds sent by Col. Ashwin Baindur
 to sprout when I have so many of these seedlings ready!) Just did not know what they were called.
