Thanks for the ID.

Terribly sorry for the citing the tree as - Myristica magnifica, an
IUCN threatened red listed tree species.
I still think the regional name should be correct.

Regards

Raghu

I have doubts for Actinorhytis calapparia. This is not found in India.
I MAY BE WRONG THOUGH. Yes this is there in Indonesia!!
Secondly, I said the fruit may belong to a different plant not this palm.

I strongly feel this is Actinorhytis calapparia only.  Previously this was known as Areca calapparia, Seaforthia elegans etc.. 
Though this is endemic to Carebbean , it has been introduced to S.Asian countries and has been in cultivation.
  A reference can be found in Gardening in India By G. Marshall Woodrow, G Marshall ( link http://books.google.com/books?).  There are other references too.
The nuts are called ram supari in Hindi and seems to have greater medicinal properties.  It is also used in rituals in South India, especially during Upakarma.

I agree, although the canopy shape is slightly different, to me it is Actinorhytis calapparia.  In the past, we had a lot.  But now it is hard to find, unless in the cemetery.
