To me it doesnt look like D. montana..
reason: 1. venation on leaf margin not like of D. montana..
2. Here leaves look opp. whereas in D. montana more or less alternate..

Yes it may not be Diospyros. In addition to opposite leaves the persistent enlarged calyx of Diospyros is missing.

Hi,
 Agree with H.S. & Prof. Singh. This is not Diospyros montana. Sending photographs of the leaves of a saplings at my farm for comparison.
 Also have serious doubts that the tree in the link provided below by Raghu is actually D.montana.
                         With regards,
                           Neil Soares.

Pictures posted here by Raghu ji are of Strychnos potatorum.
Tamil name: Thethaan, Thethaangkottai தேத்தான், தேத்தாங்கொட்டை
Local use: Seeds are used to treat unclear water to make it potable.

I would stand for S. pottatorum of Loganiaceae family as Vijay
suggested.
