Greetings from geeta rane:
 
Very happy to participate in this Euphorbia Week, Appreciated your initiatives.
I have learnt that in India we do not have "cactus";   normally what we name ALL  thorny small trees is "Cactus", BUT they are all EUPHORBIA.

Geeta ji
This one is Euphorbia neriifolia, looking from a distance. Close up of stem would better resolve the identification.

Thanks Geeta for the post.
 
Sir, I think Geeta ji has mixed up both the Euphorbias seen next to each other at Rani Baug, Mumbia. I think the first picture is  of E. antiquorum but the fourth one  is of E. neriifolia. As you had explained to me in my posts  of the same two species- the spiral spines indicative of E. neriifolia. Request Geeta ji to post close-ups if available. Thanks.
 
regards,
Rashida.

Yes both Usha ji and Rashida ji are right. I saw only the last photo. First two are clearly E. antiquorum, and fourth E. neriifolia. Third is  not clear from a distance.
