Thanks Radha Ji.
You may be right since there are many Mahogany trees in this area.

Thanks, Radha ji.
As leaves appear to be large, it maybe Swietenia macrophylla

Yes, it may be. I could not decide, but the bark reminds me of S. mahogani.

Swietania  mahogany &   S. macrophylla  are common trees in South India and grown as avenue trees.   But I have never seen such type of leaves anywhere either in Tamil Nadu or Karnataka .  I am surprised to see these variations if at all the ID is correct.

Hello Aarti,

Just going on the trees I know of these two species the one in your photos has an overall look of S. mahogani. As Garg ji has mentioned the leaves look large so he may be correct. If I could see the tree I could be sure.
Regards
Radha
