Cultivated, shrub, 3-4 feet, flowering in may. It may be Joosia umbellfera


I suspect Cestrum sp., close up of flower focussing on calyx should help


I shall attach the closeup of calyx. But it is not fragrant.


… unless there is any other close species, this could be native of tropical Americas, Cestrum diurnum, commonly known as: China Berry, day jasmine, inkberry, white chocolate jasmine.
Popularly known as din ka raja (Hindi: दिन का राजा)
