Hi Dinesh,
  It looks like Chukrasia tabularis [Lal Devdar]. Have planted a sapling but it is still small. Sending you a few of my photographs.

Neil ji, many thanks for the response.
Leaves of your planted sapling do not seem to differ much in appearance of a matured plant.

In my case, please take a look at one of my attached photos -- sapling.jpg --- the young leaf looks very different ... BUT, not familiar with how rapidly the leaves transform to take their final pinnate appearance.
