Nice picture Prakash.
This plant is there on Vetal hills Pune.I like this as it always looks very clean and neat. The leaves are reduced in size and the stem and branches are green and take over the function of phtosynthesis.I have posted pictures earlier.

Some extracts from Wikipedia link:

Parkinsonia aculeata is a tree from the family Fabaceae; common names include Mexican Palo Verde, Parkinsonia, Jerusalem thorn, or Jellybean tree. It is native to the southwestern United States (western Texas, southern Arizona), Mexico, the Caribbean, South America south to northern Argentina, and the Galapagos Islands.

It grows from 2 to 8 meters high. The leaves and stems are hairless. The flattened leaf stalk is edged by two rows of 25-30 tiny oval leaflets; the leaflets are soon deciduous in dry weather, leaving the green leaf stalks and branches to photosynthesize. The branches grow sharp spines 7-12 mm long. The flowers are yellow and fragrant, 20 mm in diameter, growing from a long slender stalk in groups of eight to ten. The fruit is a pod, leathery in appearance, light brown when mature.

P. aculeata is a major invasive species in Australia, parts of tropical Africa, Hawaii, and other islands in the Pacific Ocean.
