yes Pritchardia pacifica,

Pritchardia pacifica is a tree from the Arecaceae family, native to Tonga now also found elsewhere including in Fiji and Samoa 
Commonly known as the Fiji fan palm after one of its uses, it can grow to a height of ten metres.  
The flowers are of a yellow green colour and the fruits are brown.

Attached are pictures of Pritchardia pacifica captured at Hiranandani Powai, Heritage Gardens in January 2013.
Requested to please validate the ID.

How do you know these. Have they kept the record of these species?

I had attended the Tree Appreciation Walk conducted by … and … (both, members of this forum) last year. This garden/park maintained by the Hiranandani group has many species of palms and is really very beautiful. We were accompanied by one of the Hiranandani staff who worked in this department.
