Attached is a photo of the inflorescence of Khaya senegalensis.
Botanical Name: Khaya sengealensis
Common Name: African Mahogany
Family: Meliaceae
Location: Khaya Avenue near Heritage Garden, Hiranandani Powaii (Mumbai, Maharashtra)
Date: 09-06-2011 
Khaya is a genus of seven tree species, all native to Africa and Madagascar.
It has been reported that folk medicine utilizes the bark of Khaya to treat ailments in cattle. In India, Khaya senegalensis has gained popularity as an avenue plant due to its ornamental foliage and good shade provision.
The location of this particular photo, i.e. Hiranandani (Powaii), has an avenue named after the plant due to there being more than 50 trees planted along the road. 
While the flowering of the plant is not well sighted, there were two specimens which had 2-3 inflorescence.
Unfortunately due to the height of tree, the photos aren't of particularly good quality.

March 2013. requesting identification of this roadside tall tree in Pune camp area. No flowers or fruits were seen. Many such trees are along the roadside on the road perpendicular to Pune-Satara road. None of them are flowering at present
Perhaps it is a kind of Melia.
This could be Khoya [Khaya senegalensis].
Yes looks like Khaya senegalensis a very popular tree for roadside plantation by PMC few years back.
Many thanks ... for the Id. Yes I am seeing many such trees all over the city.

I have been very busy on the work front and posting here after a long gap. Requesting identification of this tree seen in Karjat. I did not see any flowers and fruits.
Khaya senegalensis, Meliaceae.
This could be the African Mahogany [Khaya senegalensis] locally called Khoya. It is an exotic.

12112010-PR3-In Chennai- for ID: This big tree was  growing in a Govt Park in Chennai.
Last month, there were no fruit on it though I had seen plenty of fruit on
the Mahogany trees in Bangalore.
Is it a Sweitenia mahagoni?
Are they not likely to bloom or fruit in Chennai? 
could it be Simarouba glauca? not sure but!
Could be Sweitenia macrophylla.  But cannot be confirmed till flowers and fruits are observed.
chance for Simarouba glauca not for Sweitenia
It looks like Khaya senegalensis (Desr.) A. Juss
I re-checked the Google sites and found a pic of a  Khaya senegalensis, planted as a street tree at Hanoi University of Technology, Vietnam, which matches the trunk of my tree. Please confirm if the leaves also match.
I think .. is correct, It is Khaya senegalensis-African mahogany. I have seen the same in Mumbai, but smaller trees.  The very distinct bark, ashy, scaly, pink tinged and the long, compound  leaves at the end of the twigs, indicative of the same. Please check the pictures and  info in 'Trees of Delhi' , pg :236

Someone has planted it one or two years back.
The place it is growing has two to three feet soil and under the soil, there is deep layer (8 feet) of cement concrete debris.

Please identify this tree.

Ficus sp. ? 

Not Ficus Sir.

is this in india? naturally occurring. planted? seems some arborist has been looking after it for a while, thats almost a non-occurrence in our urban areas. so where is it?
Does it contain latex ?

Yes. This inf. is required.

Meliaceae by any chance? 

Pl. give us the place and date for id. 

Calophyllum sp??? though i have not seen such bleached white bark on one of these. yet its possible
Madam sorry. This is not Calophyllum.  
In Hulhumale, Maldives. This is not native to this place.

I think this you should have given in the beginning itself, as everybody was thinking of some urban place in India. I think wasted efforts of everybody. 
yes true but somewhat thick and may be leathry leaves made me wonder. i am stumped and the case presentor is not very helpful or forthcoming with info. it was like pulling teeth to get the location from him. i like to go hunt for diagnosis but the originator has to be helpful too. i jumped into this case but in future i may not participate in his cases
I understand, the initial information you got was insufficient. I apologize for that.
This tree is 12 to 14 year old. Not flowered yet.
Not sure. Could be a Khaya. Meliaceae

Khaya senegalensis??

Thanks, ... for the id.
I also feel these images are close to images at Khaya senegalensis
