Palm tree seen at a garden in Thane.

To me it looks like Bismarckia nobilis.
Experts, kindly validate.

Looks close.

Need to check this Palm from Dattaji Salvi Udyan as well.
Name given was Red Lattan Palm, with the reddish line on the edges.
But the other Red Lattan Palms that I have seen are more red in color.
Probably they were young plants.
…, do we have a Palm Species expert who can validate?

Appears close as per images at Bismarckia nobilis  

I too believe it is Bismarckia nobilis.

Thanks for the id. There are two palms close by.

First was shown as Bismarckia nobilis and the second one above as Red Lattan Palm.
If you happen to revisit the place, please do have a look at both the palms.
