Hi Satish,
It is Diospyros peregrina [D.embryopteris] locally
called Temburni.

Thanks a lot Neil,Garg
This is a tree of evergreen forest often by the side of rivers or trees in damp shady areas and not common in deciduous forests though it is said to be observed all over India.I had never seen this before. This is a cultivated tree in one bungalow here in Pune. It is a member of Ebonaceae family (Not very common) and is called as Temburni or Tinduk(Sanskrit) Indian Persimmon or Gaabh    (Hindi).It is described on page 264 of 'Further flowers of Sahyadri'. Though the colour of flower is mentioned as yellow in the book the one I saw were white with yellow tinge.The flowers are dioecious i.e. Male and female flowers are different; may be mine are female flowers.
Regards
Satish
