attaching the photographs of foliage of a tree. failed to capture flowers or fruits of the tree despite my repeated attempts. may be the flowers are short lived and the tree doesn’t fruit here in my locality. the details are as under.
area: Chandigarh rose garden.
number of trees: 2
height: approx. 30 ft.
Date: 27th July, 2013.
Temperature: approx. 33 degrees
leaves: slightly leathery without any typical smell or taste. slightly off coloured on the abaxial side. i think they are not tomentose on the abaxial surface. young leaves with a white powdery covering.
Bark with deep fissures, dark coloured.
sorry for not posting any other pictures of flowers and/or fruits.

Experts are requested to comment on the identification.

The links you have sent for pictures of flowers are on the tree. but in Chandigarh the trees have been pruned for lower branches and canopy is way too high for my camera to capture the tiny flowers.
the photos i have i am sharing with you.
May be some exotic species of Ehretia as per details herein, as the style is 2-fid as per Flora of Pakistan.
