This is Phalsa [Grewia asiatica].
I think this could be Grewia abutilifolia. G. asiatica has yellow coloured flowers.
Agree with … Grewia abutilifolia Vent. ex Juss, a common shrub of open patches in moist deciduos forests.…: These are in abundance along the Shilonda trail too.

… a wild wild guess … some Mallotus ?
Thanks, … You may be right.
Fruits are matching with: Mallotus tetracoccus
Leaves & habit looks a bit different from images at Mallotus tetracoccus (Roxb.) Kurz
Yes. You are correct. May be a new species to efi.
It is Grewia species. leaf 3-nerved, drupe 2-4 lobed.
Very like Grewia abutilifolia. One of the variable Grewia species.
Does not matches with images at Grewia flavescens Juss.
I think appears close to images at Grewia abutilifolia Vent. ex Juss.
Yes, it is Grewia abutilifolia !
Grewia asiatica flowering : 4 images. 3 posts by 2 authors.

Pl. check /species/m—z/m/malvaceae/grewia/grewia-abutilifolia-1
Looks like Grewia asiatica;
Peduncle is too short compared to pedicel, for it to be Grewia asiatica.
the leaf and flower do not match with Grewia villosa; it is not Grewia tilifolia also
Its Grewia abutilifolia
Can you check fruits image at /species/m—z/m/malvaceae/grewia/grewia-abutilifolia-1 ?
