Dear Gargji,
Am very familiar with this tree, so I could say this is precisely Diospyros malabarica (Desr.) Kostel.
This is our native tree found from coastal to mid-altitude; often cultivated.

The tree is abundant along river Moyar of satyamangalam and Nilgiri north forest divisions of TN.

It does look like Diospyros malabarica, as stated by Muthu ji. It is a riverine species and has leathery leaves which are dark green above and yellowish beneath; venation also characteristic. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dinesh_valke/2478531518/ 
Synonyms: D. embryopteris, D. peregrina.
