Happy to see this plant growing at Mumbai also!

For those who don't know, this plant has been classified by IUCN under
the Red List, as being 'Extinct in the wild'.

Although being cultivated at A.J.C. Bose Botanic Garden (Indian
Botanic Garden), Howrah and the Fairchild Tropical Garden, Florida,
USA.

Thanks for sharing Aarti Ji.

Best regards,
Ritesh.

I think this to be Corypha macropoda, a non extinct palm found in
India. Regards, Shrikant

Just for you Ritesh, Corypha taliera was endemic to west Bengal, now
gone but available in gardens.
