Hello,

Rauvolfia serpentina has pinkish corolla tube. It can be a possibility
that the plant in picture could be R. densiflora. This species is very
similar to R. serpentina in appearance and occurs in Southern part of
India. It is also known as R. decurva

Many thanks for highlighting Nudratji,
The white flowers matches with R. densiflora Benth. 
But was there any recent nomenclatural changes in this?
