I think it's Bombax ceiba. From Indiantreepix Database:
Bombax ceiba (B. malabaricum, Salmalia malabarica) Bombacaceae Semal, Red silk cotton, Shembal, Semur in Feb.'08 near Badalapur, Maharastra, in Mumbai & near Pune; in Bassein fort - Vasai, District Thane on 17th and 24th February 2008; begun flowering in Nagpur; in full bloom on 24/2/08 at Moodlu Koppal, Mysore district; in Delhi- first noted in 2nd week of Feb.; in March' 08  - Juhu Scheme (Mumbai); Sanjay Gandhi National Park(SGNP) (Borivali & Thane) Maharashtra- 14/3/08; in March-2006- Kolkata;  Beautiful Trees & Shrubs of Calcutta by Sh.
