... Many thanks for the lead. Opilia is a climbing shrub as u rightly pointed out. But the species i have posted here is a small tree. So i wl wait for others to comment. Please share ur thoughts.
It is Opilia amentacea; I have noticed the plant in E. Ghats.

Thanks, ..., for such detailed postings.
These will certainly benefit the present & future generations.
Thank you sir. Ma'am, in fact, in the same spot, there is one individual which has a thick stem is upright while another is scandent and has twined around the Ficus which is also growing on the rock. Regarding the fruits, I have been following up on this plant since February when I first spotted. Will definitely follow up on the fruits as well!
great so your own observation supports what i had gleaned from reading up.  will look forward to your finding the fruits.

Found in Vandalur forest. Chennai.
The fruits are eated by animals.
Seeds are fully dominated with layer of flesh around it.

Pl check for Opilia amentacea

Cansjera rheedii?
