Affirmative Dr. Swamy. It is Sapindus trifoliatus [syn.S. laurifolius] locally called Aritha / Ritha. Have a few on my property. Will send my photographs of this later.
                      With regards,
                        Neil Soares.

I think that this is Sapindus laurifolius of Sapindaceae family.

According to "the plant list" S. laurifolius is an unresolved name and though Sapindus trifoliatus is an accepted name it doesn't mention that S. laurifolius is a synonym. 

Do someone has any relevant information on this aspect?

Regards,
Giby
