Shrub, height 1-2 metre
At Matheran,Maharashtra.
13June,2010

Looks like Croton sp. (Euphorbiaceae family).
Croton for sure can it be Croton verreauxii?
This species look like Cleidion belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae
Croton verreauxii is an australian species!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croton_verreauxii
It may not be Cleidion because the flowers of the plant in the picture has more than 9 stamens (in Cleidion stamens are limited between 2-9).
This could be Mallotus stenanthus (Euphorbiaceae)
Ref. Gamble II vol 1321-22
I agree with ... id.
It seems to be Mallotus sp. (male flowers)
Yes, these are male flowers of Mallotus, most probably aureopunctatus or stenanthus

Mallotus resinosus (Blanco) Merr. ... popular synonym: Mallotus stenanthus Müll.Arg.
Not sure if M. resinosus and M. stenanthus are distinct species; The Plants List version 1 considers them synonymous with full confidence.

The golden yellow dots on underside of leaf are found in this species too; had read somewhere - it is characteristic of M. aureopunctatus.
