Many thanks Prashant :) ... it must be Carissa congesta, and not what I guessed as Rauvolfia serpentina.

It is certainly Carissa congesta (Hindi : Karaunda). Prashant ji has already identified.
Nice photograph.
Regs,
Suresh

Dear all,
 
'Carissa congesta' called 'Karvand' 'करवंद' or 'Karmard' 'करमर्द' in Marathi.
 
and
 
'Carissa Bispinosa' syn. 'C. arduina' called 'Vilayati Karvand' 'विलायती करवंद' in Marathi.
 
Regards,

Again a typical observation.
The plants flower 1-2 months later in northern India as compared to that in Maharashtra.
We had been observing the flowering in March.
