 This looks like Trewia nudiflora [now called Mallotus nudiflora] to me. The local name is Petari / Petani. Please check the archives of this group for my photographs of this.
                With regards,
                   Neil Soares.

This seems to be Mallotus polycarpus. The male flowers have a red calyx.
In M. nudiflorus the calyx is greenish.

Yes, Mallotus polycarpus, to me too. It is in line with various other posts where M. polycarpus was mistaken for M. nudiflorus.
Thanks Radha for resurfacing and validating the post.
