I have seen this palm in vile parle,about 5 to 6 yrs abck. It had come in paper. I think genus is same, not know whether the sps also is same.
Is it Corypha or Caryota?
Even at that time it had come in paper that it flowers once in 30 to 40yrs.
It was fun when we went there. Any one you ask in vileparle how and where to go? They use to guide us.

Yes, It is a monocarpic palm (flowers only once in its life).
Like Ficus, It has been considered as a keystone species which provide
food for many insects, birds, bats and other animals.
It takes about 30-40 years for flowering.
