I presume this is Markhamia lutea of Bignoniaceae. Native to Africa.
Planted as avenue tree. Please wait for expert comments.

Sandhya

Thanks for the quick reply. Is that the same as Markhamia lutea?

Yes, per The Plants List, Markhamia platycalyx (Baker) Sprague is a synonym of Markhamia lutea (Benth.) K.Schum.
Yet please wait for comments for the correctness of ID.

Regards.
