After putting so much time by looking in different resources, I feel I have failed to get the correct Id.
On 28/6/09 in Chilkur NP in Hyderabad. With so many species of Grewia flowering with yellow flowers there, there was lot of confusion as far as identification was concerned. Forest Flora of Hyderabad State on the net (which I think is the best net resource available from any states in India) certainly helps a bit, but not always-

Garg ji, GREWIAs confuse me.
Yet, what you have posted, to me seems G. asiatica ... G. tiliaefolia has large leaves (probably the largest, especially the width, among the genus), and the flowers are probably the smallest ... these are my own thoughts.
Please wait for comments.

I think your guess of G. damine is better and closer to what it is; perhaps it is !!
G. asiatica can grow to become a large shrub ... larger than G. damine ... but I do not know about their canopies.

Thanks, Dinesh ji,
I don't think it's G. asiatica. It was a large shrub with spreading canopy. 
Can it be Grewia damine syn. Grewia salvifolia as per links?:
