Dear All,
Thanks very much for the effort you have all put in to id. the species. For those of you who may be interested, I am attaching the google earth image of the locality. You can get an idea of the whole area if you go to google earth and search at the latitude and longitude mentioned in the picture. The Budhist ruins are seen in the pic and the forest around.The area is  protected by the ASI. Altogether a very interesting site. Thanks again.
Rajaram

Dear members
I have not seen these two species personally but what I gather from description in Brandis Indian Trees, the leaves of P. rubininosum (some even considering it synonym of P. semisagittatum) are smaller (1-3 inch), very oblique the upper half much larger than lower, flf solitary, capsule cylindrical, pentagonal. Here is image of P. semisagittatum.


In P. reticulatum, the leaves are larger, two halves not much different in size, flowers in clusters of 2-3, and fruit velvety.


The photograph above shows one smaller flower (or young fruit) at the base of larger fruit, showing that flowers are inclusters and fruit is velety.

I would thus go with P. reticulatum.

Resurfacing again for ID:
 
Earlier feedback:

Vijayasankar ji............Dear all, this plant is Pterospermum of Sterculiaceae. It could be either P. rubiginosum or P. reticulatum. We need to know the features of bracteoles to confirm the species id.

Kenneth.....................Fruit looks similar to a tree that I've only seen pics of, not in person: Hymenaea courbaril, West Indian locust.
