ID request 230211SP02: Big tree. Looks like some Acacia sp 
- Parkia biglandulosa Wight & Arn. Mimosaceae "Chendu Phali"
- it should read Parkia biglandulosa Wight & Arn. commonly called Badminton ball tree.
- Ball in Badminton??? Here we play Badminton with Shuttlecock.
- ... ball badminton is not much in vogue now (at least in Mumbai OR Thane that I know of) ... earlier, about 20 - 30 years back, it was played in my neighborhood.
Some info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_badminton
- There are plenty of these tree in Mysore city.  There are nearly 5 to 6 trees nearby my house.  I will upload the photos shortly.
- Parkia biglandulosa
Family Mimosaceae
Not native of India. Widely planted in many cities.
At present it is flowering in Pune city as you have rightly noticed. There are many trees in Mayur colony as well as on Prabhat road Pune. Regarding its origin some sites say that it is from Malaysia, some say it is from south America while some say it to be Africa. I really don't know which is correct.
Attaching some images from my collection
- Parkia biglandulosa nice catch. In Govt. P.G. College Balaghat there are two very old trees of Parkia about 60 year old. We indentified them as Parkia roxburghii. Are these two the same species or different one?
- Parkia roxburghii G. Don (and  Inga timoriana DC. (basionym),  Parkia javanica auct.) is synonym of Parkia timoriana (DC.) Merr.
Whereas,  Parkia biglandulosa Wight & Arn. (Syn: Parkia pedunculata J. F. Macbr.) Is completely a different plant.

Fabaceae - Mimosoideae - Bangalore - RA - Parkia biglandulosa - Badminton Ball Tree:  African locust tree is a tall handsome tree, native of W. Africa.
Large trees are frequently found in old Mahomedan gardens about the city of Hyderabad, Golconda and elsewhere.
The farinaceous pulp which surrounds the seeds is edible and so also are the seeds themselves, which taste like garlic.
For most part of the year, this tree is very easily confused with Delonix or Jacaranda species.
It is only during December-January, appearance of tennis-ball shaped fluffy flower heads makes one realise that this tree has to be Parkia!
In the winter season, 1½ - 2 ft branches, hanging from the leaf axil, bear rust coloured bead-like flower heads, which gradually gain size of a tennis ball - and the "flowers" bloom to spectacular white electric bulbs! The flowers in round white heads are prominent, hence the native name 'Chendul' , or ball. 
Leaves bipinnate with very numerous leaflets; rachis of leaf downy, 1 ft. of more long; pinnae 20-30 pair, 60 to 100 pairs leaflets, rigid, 1/4 in. long. Presence of two glands at the base of leaf, lends this species the name, biglandulosa.
It is an avenue tree in Chennai. This can grow into a large tree indeed with many spreading branches. The leaves are fine and feathery. The inflorescence is similar to a Badminton Ball hanging at the tip of a long thick stalk - the reason for its common name.
The fruits that are flat are in clusters at the tip of long thick stalks. Known to grow quite fast. The entire inflorescence has a very soft appearance. However, once the flower is dry the core is pretty hard. Please do not even for fun try flinging it at any one. It really hurts!
Nice and complete set of pictures.

Nice one the flowers looks like drum sticks
I remember.......while going to school early morning in similar cold season we used to collect the fallen flowers remove the coverings and the residual ovary with shaft (Which really looks like drum stick) and used it to hit on the heads of our friends. Naughty act no?

Tree for ID, Chattisgarh NAW-JUN16-01 : 5 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (7)
Kindly identify this gulmohar-like tree, if possible. I havent seen the tree myself but a friend sent me the tree's pictures and some pods from Chattisgarh. Quite likely not a native species.
Pods are 20-25 cms long brown outside with a white flaky pulp in which light brown seeds (8-10 mm in length each) are embedded. The seeds germinated readily.
Reminds me of Parkia biglandulosa Wight & Arn. [Mimosaceae].
Does not matches with images of Parkia biglandulosa (Cultivated) 
To me it is clearly Parkia biglandulosa

Parkia biglandulosa to me too.

Parkia varieties : 9 posts by 3 authors.
I have seen some pictures and discussions on Eflora about Parkia trees. My confusion is whether Parkia biglandulosa and Parkia biglobosa are the same. If not how can one differentiate?
Also are the seeds of both types edible?
It is different

Yes, both are different as per 
http://www.catalogueoflife.org/col/details/species/id/11480086/synonym/11747822
We do not have the above species so far in efi site as per 

I had picked up some seeds from the roadside in Bangalore but wasn’t sure which variety it belonged to. Will have to wait for it to flower, I guess.
Managed to get some photos. Hope they will prove useful in identifying the species.

The leaves look like Colvellea/ Parkia as these trees have almost similar leaves. Can some body ID the tree.
Looks like Parkia
May I seek the opinion of other learned members too !
Yes, Correct. Likely to be Parkia biglandulosa Wight & Arn. as per keys herein.
Pl. check with the keys.
