No it is not. The leaves of the Litchi tree are much smaller in size. And I know Litchi tree. Could it be Amura Rohituka. Locally it is known as Heirang goi.

The leaves look simple. Amoora/ Litchie or most members of their
family will not have simple leaves.
from the interpetioler stipules you can try searching Rubiaceae to
start with. Kanjilal's flora of Assam might help.

My first guess would be Garcinia xanthochymus. The fruits are said to be "sweet & acid". Needs more info.
