Ranjini ji, I have a strong feeling that the first photo IMG_5439-ph.JPG is different from the other three ... please confirm.
the second, IMG_5388-ITP-2.JPG seems to me Putranjiva roxburghii.
the rest, I do not know.

Dinesh ji & Pankaj ji Thanks for pointing this out.I thought the
leaves with the wavy edges looked similar & assumed they were the
same.I wanted a picture with flowers too! My mistake.The first one was
taken at Lalbagh & the rest were taken in the Games Village.Thank you
for IDing this tree-i had been v. keen to know what Putranjiva
roxburghii looked like.

Hello all
The first pic seems to me of
Aphanamixis polystachya (Wall.) Parker in Ind. Forester 57: 486, 1931;
Almeida, Fl. Mah.1: 223, 1996; Singh et al, Fl. Mah. St. 1: 502, 2000.
Synonyms: Aglaia polystachya Wall ex Roxb. Fl. Ind 2: 429, 1824.
Andersonia rohituka Roxb. Fl. Ind. 2: 213, 1832. Amoora rohituka
(Roxb.)Wt. & Arn. in Wt., Prodr. 119, 1834; Cooke, Fl. Pres. Bombay 1:
224, 1958 (Repr.).
Common names: Rohitak, Sohaga.

the next three is rightly identified by Dinesh Ji as Puthranjiva

Drypetes roxburghii (Wall.) Hurusawa in J. Fac. Sci. Univ. Tokyo,
Sect. 3, Bot. 6: 337, 1954; Singh et al, Fl. Mah. St. 2: 872, 2001;
Almeida, Fl. Mah. 4: 302, 2003. Synonyms: Putranjiva roxburghii Wall.
Tent. Fl. Nepal 61, 1828; Hook f., Fl. Brit. Ind. 5: 336, 1887; Cooke,
Fl. Pres. Bombay 3: 86, 1958 (Repr.).
Common name: Putranjiva, Putravati.

The stones of the fruits are made into necklaces and put around the
children neck so as to preserve them from evil and keep them in good
health (hence the name putranjiva which means life of the child).

The first picture perhaps does not belong to the other three.
The other three are perhaps Putranjiva roxburghii
