Looks like Bauhinia purpurea.However,I leave it for the experts to give their final opinion.

It is Bauhinia purpurea, commonly known as butterfly tree, orchid tree, geranium tree, , kachnar, sona, karali  etc.belonging to the pea family (Fabaceae).  The most distinguishing feature to identify the species from other similar bauhinia  ( B. variegata) is that its petal do not over lap and the flower has only 3 long stamens.
