the tree is definitely Chukrasia tabularis.

Yes, I agree with Chukrasia tabularis

Could be Chukrasia tabularis??

Thanks, …, for the correct Id.
I also think it matches with images at Chukrasia tabularis A.Juss. 

Looks like Dysoxylum sp. Could be D. binectariferum

To me it is Chukrassia tabularis

Chukrasia has bipinnately compound leaves not unipinnately.

Pl. see images at Chukrasia tabularis A.Juss.

Agree with … This is Lal Devdar [Chukrassia tabularis]. Saplings have bipannately compound leaves whereas adult trees usually exhibit unipinnately compound ones. Sending a few photographs. Attachments (7)

Sterculia guttata

I go with …  Chukrasia tabularis A.Juss. The leaves are very characteristic. The fruits seem to be dried immature, thus no dehiscence seen here.
