Bark was dark in color.

Can it be Garcinia talbotii, though it is very difficult to say in vegetative stage?

Radha Ji,
Adding more pictures.
The leaves are thin, glossy.
The tree is growing straight almost as tall as the Coconut tree next to it.
Tender leaves are pink.

Aarti

Pardeshi Ji,
Thanks for supporting my suggested id of Garcinia.
The dark bark reminded me of Garcinia indica.
After you suggested Garcinia, I tried the fallen leaf which I had picked up earlier.
It is sour to taste.
So there is a possibility this could be Kokum, Garcinia indica.
Also, images on Eflora from a herbal garden in Pune are very close to this tree.
Regards,
Aarti

Yes, Garcinia indica is quite likely. This tree can grow very tall in crowded spaces. The colour of new leaves matches as well as the texture. G. talbotii on the other hand has thicker leaves. Sour taste is also an indication for G. indica.

Radha

Radha Ji,
You are correct.
There are many trees together.
Will look out for the flowers or fruits.
Garcinia indica came to my mind initially, because of the dark bark.
Thanks a lot.
Regards,
Aarti
