This was also from Shibpur Botanical Garden, photographed on 25-12-2010. I have only this single photograph.

Is it Cycus rotundifolia.

Thank you very much again Madam, but couldn’t find any Cycas rotundifolia.
Can it be Cycas sainathii/species/a—l/cl/cycadaceae/cycas/cycas-sainathii?

… Sir informs this appears to be Cycas pectinata Griffith.
If I can locate it again I will try to get details of this tree on my next visit to Shibpur.
