Is it by any chance stereospermum kunthianum ?
For me this looks like Stereospermum kunthianum
 
Trees of Lalbagh, Bangalore - Stereospermum kunthianum - Pink Jacaranda Tree:  Stereospermum kunthianum is a deciduous shrub or tree, 3-15 m high, with a stem diameter of 25 cm; bark thin, grey to grey-black, smooth or flakes off in patches resembling the European plane tree; trunk rarely straight, mostly forked; branches twisted; branching is erect and spreading to form a light, rounded crown. Slash white or light brown.  
Leaves imparipinnately compound, 25 cm long, alternate with 2-4 (max. 6) almost opposite pairs of leaflets and 1 terminal leaflet; 5-9 leaflets with short, soft hairs, oblong to oblong elliptic, stiff, 5-8(max. 10) x 3-7.5 cm, green and hairless above and yellow-green with prominent veins under; apex broadly tapering, often abruptly attenuate; base tapering; margin entire, occasionally toothed in coppice growth; petiolules almost absent; petiole up to 7 cm long, caniculate at the top; young leaves sometimes toothed and hairy.  
Flowers precocious, fragrant, bisexual, showy, mauve to off-white, more usually pinkish with red streaks on the lower corolla lobes and produced in large, drooping panicles on long peduncles; corolla with a tube up to 3 cm long and spreading lobes, 3-4 cm in diameter; calyx bell shaped, irregularly 2- to 5-lobed, partially forming 2 lips; stamens 4, enclosed within the corolla tube; ovary linear-oblong, 2-chambered.  
Fruits slender, flat capsules or paired pods up to 45 x 1 cm, cylindrical, greenish-purple, reddish-brown to dark brown, pendulous, spirally twisted, smooth, splitting into 2 valves to release many flat, long, narrow, winged seeds. The remnants of the capsule remain on the tree for months.

Please ID the tree. Photographs taken in a park in Mysore during  2015. For me it looks like Stereospermum species

Pl. check 

Pl. check 
To me appears close. 

On rechecking I consider it as S.kunthianum. Pl confirm. 

Appears to me Stereospermum colais of Bignoniaceae family.

I checked the comparative images. The photographs do not match the suggested species. The flowers are close to S.kunthianum, an African species. Could it be.

You may be right, ..., as per images at Stereospermum kunthianum (Cultivated)
