Here, little change of name: 
Acalypha amentacea Roxb. subsp. wilkesiana (Müll.Arg.) Fosberg in Smithsonian Contr. Bot. 45: 10. 1980; Govaerts et al., World Checkl.& Bibl. Euphorbiaceae 1: 48. 2000.  A. wilkesiana Müll.Arg. in DC., Prodr. 15(2): 817. 1866.

TMC Biodiversity Park  Thane
Date: April 22, 2018 ... Altitude: about 15 m (50 feet) asl
Acalypha wilkesiana  Müll.Arg.  

To me looks different from images at Acalypha wilkesiana Müll.Arg. 
Can it be Acalypha paniculata Miq. as per images herein or some other species ?
This is definitely Acalypha wilkesiana Mull.Arg. This species show much variation in colour and patterns on leaves. There are several cultivars and no workable classification is available,

attractive flowers they are really beautiful. This croton was chopped by some insensitive gardener. It hardly had any leaves but these tiny flowers attracted my attention. To my surprise there were other well grown crotons around but none were flowering

efloraofindia:''For Id 01062012MR1’’ ?bees foraging leaves and not flowers of Acalypha wilkesiana forma circinata @ Pune: Pune May 2012
Found these 3 different bees (I do not know their names) foraging the leaves of Acalypha wilkesiana forma circinata. They did not visit the flowers at all. They were hardly moving as if glued to the leaves. The 3rd bee after 2 hours was found foraging the underside of the leaf. There were many other plants around but these bees were not interested in them. Wonder what exactly they were looking for?
may be there are white flies laying eggs
Fwd: efloraofindia:''For Id 01062012MR1’’ ?bees foraging leaves and not flowers of Acalypha wilkesiana forma circinata @ Pune: This is the same - Polistes sp. [a species of Paper Wasp].
it could be Ropalidia marginata (Vespidae) 
IMG_2349_Bee_2.jpg- might be Ropalidia

Sharing images of male flower spike of Acalypha wilkesiana at a housing society garden at Pune. It looks unusual as it is not hanging downwards rather erect and on full growth it was only 5 cm in length. Another young male flower spike was also seen.
At the following site the length of male flower spike is mentioned to be 20 cm long
The following site mentions that the male flowers are in long spikes which hang downwards
In my previous post also I can see long male flower spike hanging downwards

A very colorful tropical shrub grown for its attractive reddish leaves. Beautiful foliage of various shades of red, yellow and green. Cultivars of A. wilkesiana, which can grow as tall as 7FT, are found in a wide variety of colors: green and white, green and yellow, red, bronze, coppery, or brown. The leaves also vary in form, some being flat and others undulating, while the flowers are inconspicuous.
In a garden, where they are often used as informal hedges or in massed beds,
all Acalypha species require full sun, well-drained soil, and careful pruning to prevent them from becoming leggy. They are easily propagated by cuttings.
Okay.

Could it be some Acalypha?
yes this is Acalypha
Can it be Acalypha wilkesiana ?
The tree is not Acalypha wilkesiana. A.w. is a shrub (many varieties/colours) commonly planted as hedge in gardens.
Acalypha wilkesiana as per another thread.

................auct. inside, wilkesiana outside
Nice photographs but consider especially the spike
Female bracts entire, minute; inflorescences to 30 cm long, dense-flowered, with massed red styles Acalypha hispida
+ Female bracts toothed, accrescent; inflorescences to 12 cm long, lax flowered, styles yellowish- or greenish-white, occasionally reddish  5 Acalypha wilkesiana

Yes Sir, but I did the reverse because googling "Acalypha musaica auct." gives the desired result first, as in 'TopTropicals'!
And also yes, I didn't check the KEY, but more elaborate description can also be found in http://www.nationaalherbarium.nl/Euphorbs/specA/Acalypha.htm.
Is it Acalypha hispida finally ?
Conspicuous toothed female bracts in lax flowered pistillate spike indicates it is Acalypha wilkesiana Muell. Arg.
As per Flora of India volume 23, it is Acalypha amentacea ssp. wilkesiana.
Thank you very much Sir for the accepted name in Flora of India.

Ornamental shrub for ID from Pantnagar: DSR_5/5_May2016 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (5)
This ornamental shrub is planted along road in Pantnagar. I have never seen flowers on it. Foliage nowadays is colourful.
I have no idea about its ID, please suggest!
Could be Copper Leaf, Acalypha Species?
Acalypha inferno
Thank you ... for leading to the ID.
I am taking it as Acalypha wilkesiana 'Inferno' (Euphorbiaceae).
Other A.wilkesiana produce inflorescence here (though sterile), but not this one. I will keep close eye on it to ensure.
