Could be Chinese Fan Palm (Livistona chinensis)

Or maybe some other Livistonia...
Cheers!

 Looks like it may be Thrinax radiata (Florida Thatch palm),

 I think that the trunk is too slender for most Livistona spp, at least L. chinensis.

 Regards--

Thanks Ken! I also wondered that the trunk looked too slender. This
does look like Florida Thatch palm. The form of the inflorescence also
agrees well with that of Florida Thatch palm.
Cheers!

Ranjini, thanks for pix of palm with flowers. Good pix.
Although similar fan-shaped palms are commonly seen as potted plants, 1st time seeing
it flowering.

I think similar Palms has been identified as Thrinax parviflora Sw. in the postings by Raman Arunachalam & Alka Khare (Validation by Andrew Henderson)
Are both same or different & are both being cultivated in India ?

But I did not find any such mention of Thrinax radiata in any India books on google search.
