Looks like Calophyllum inophyllum - Alexandrian laurel. 
 
regards,
Rashida.

Hi Pravin,
  Surprising, but this looks like Rayan [Manilkara hexandra] to me.
                       Regards,
                         Neil.

Yes, I agree with Neil ji on Manilkara hexandra which is more
popularly known as Khirni being used for grafting Chikkoo varieties.

I am no expert but this does not look like the Calophyllum inophyllum or the Manilkara hexandra seen in Chennai city.
The bark looks very distinctive.
Attaching my pics of Manilkara hexandra trunk and leaves (slightly turned in).

Padmini Raghavan.

So sorry, now I see that the bark of my tree is very much like that of the specimen under discussion.

Padmini Raghavan.
