Saw this small young tree on 17/3/08 at Jayanti, Duars, West Bengal. Leaves appear like that of Kanak Champa (Pterospermum acerifolium). Is there any other tree with similar leaves?
With regards,

Dear Gargji,
It is indeed kanak champa (dinner plate tree!,because of the leaves)  There are many varieties in this species.  I have seen a tree having even bigger leaves than this  in Chennai in Theosophical society.
