A small to medium rainforest tree growing to 25 metres tall and a diameter of 60 cm.  
The natural range is from the Clarence River (29° S) in New South Wales to tropical northern Australia. It is also found in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.  
The Pink Flowered Doughwood is usually found in riverine rainforest areas.  
The trunk is almost white, of a doughy appearance, with a thick layer of soft corky dead bark. The trunk is slightly buttressed or flanged at the base. The opposite leaflets are in threes, mostly ovate. 6 to 13 cm long, tapering to a blunt point at the tip. This tree is the favoured food plant for the spectacular Ulysses butterfly, Papilio ulysses. Flowers form in a cyme or panicle springing from the old leaf axils. Individual flowers are 3 to 4 cm long, and form from January to March. The fruit is two to four cell dry cocci. They mature from July to December, spitting down one side exposing a single shiny black flattened seed, 4 to 5 cm long.  
Germination is unpredictable, starting within 30 days or taking several years. Soaking the seeds for several days appears to remove some of the germination inhibitors.

A small tree with tiny berry-like fruits.
Could this be Melicope elleryana, the Pink Flowered Doughwood posted by me earlier in flowering?
efi page on Melicope elleryana
These are the fruits of Melicope elleryana.
On searching, they look the same.

Tree ID- tiny pinky buds, near Ulsoor Lake, Bangalore: Please help to identify.
Location- Aurobindo Ashram Garden, opp Ulsoor Lake, Bangalore
Date- June 17, 2012

It look like Melastomaceae plant probably Memecylon species ....
I too think this to be Memecylon.....
I went to see the tree again today to see if maybe the buds had flowered but they were in the same state. Will share updated pictures in a few weeks once there are visible changes.
This plant has compound, pinnately three foliolate leaves. This rules out Memecylon. Its likely to be some member of Rutaceae but inflorescence is not terminal. Open flowers might give a better clue
Just a guess...any Leea species?
This is Memecylon species
Not memecylon, it may be any of the genus comes under melastomataceae
It's Rutaceae member-only,
Melicope sp., mostly M. elleryana, 

yes I agree with ... it is Melicope elleryana (pink doughwood) an exotic plant   

Yes, Melicope elleryana from me as well.
When I suggested Leea Species, ! had not seen Melicope elleryana
Saw it later at Lalbagh, Bangalore.
