Trevesia palmata (Roxb. ex Lindl.) Vis.  ??

Thank you …! Nepali Names : चुलेत्रो Chuletro / लोरिया Loriyaa

Trevesia palmata correctly identified 

A feedback from Remko ji at
“To me this is clearly Brassaiopsis mitis as it also occurs in Sikkim.
Trevesia has a much more leathery leaf, completely glabrous. Here, clearly hairs are visible.”

Yes, I agree as per images and specimens at GBIF
