Could it be Soymida febrifuga ?
I think ... you are right there is possibility of being Soymida febrifuga as the due to wilting the leaf morphology have chandes, the fruit looks quite similar to Soymida febrifuga !!  
Descriptions by K.M.Matthew in Excursion Flora of TN affirms this to be Soymida febrifuga (Roxb.) A. Juss. of Meliaceae.

Soymida febrifuga 28101101PD Flora of Orissa: sharing the pictures of Soymida febrifuga of Meliaceae
which I had taken from Ranpur, Nayagarh, Orissa
Place of collection: Ranpur, Nayagarh
Altitude: 320 m above msl
Habit: Tree
Habitat: Dry deciduous forest
Local name: Rohini
Uses: The bark is used to treat chronic Jundice along with other plant parts.
This is a very common plant in Orissa, and it is found up to an elevation of 200 to 800 m above msl in dryer parts of Orissa. One of the ecological aspect of this species is it is resistant to fire as i found this in almost all fire prone forest patches in Orissa.
Nice pictures, ... This is called 'mamsarohini' in Sanskrit and is said to be used for the treatment of a rare disease - muscular dystrophy.

Nice photographs ! Have one on my farm. Sending a few photographs to showcase the leaves.
In fact it is not 'mamsarohini' but "Mamsa Rohini" as it is having miraculous effect on seventh (i.e. deepest) layer of skin known as Rohini. In many parts of India, that's why it is known as Rohina.
There are over 100 Sanskrit names of Soymida febrifuga and
also
At least 10 different plant species are known as "Mamsa Rohini" along with Soymida due to its effect on skin.
Thanks ..., for the correction as well as useful information.
Its a news to me that there are also several other plants known as "Mamsa Rohini". Is there any common indicators for these species, other than the use? It will be interesting to know their names, if possible.
The tree is fairly common in Tadoba W.L.Sanctuary

Please help to identify this tree found in Gir Forest National Park, Gujarat........picture taken in the 1st week of April,13
To me this looks Soymida febrifuga of Meliaceae
I agree with ... id.
The lobes in the fruits are very distinct here, may be it is normal to young fruits. Mature ones don't show such prominent ridges.
