Medium sized tree, trifoliate
Local Marathi name: Nirguda

- Agree with ... - more likely to be Balage [Vitex altissima].
- Vitex altissima indeed.
Again we could observe only buds as we visited 15 days earlier to you. Some large trees behind one Capparis moonii on a plane. Isn't it?

Concur. Sending one of my photographs for comparison.

Vitex altissima undoubtedly !!

This is called in Tamil as 'Mayiladi' and in Malayalam as 'Naviladi' (hope i am right). The meaning for both is 'Foot of Peacock' in allusion to the shape of 3-foliolate leaf together with the winged petiole.

Vitex altissima in malayalam "Mayilellu". I am not sure about the name Naviladi because there is a difference in names in different places of
Kerala.

Thanks ..., for the correction as well as Malayalam name. 'Naviladi' is a Kannada name as per the link: http://envis.frlht.org.in/botanical_search.php?txtbtname=vitex+al&gesp=2590%7CVitex+altissima+L.F
