  • $\begingroup$ If you could say which part of India you found the plant in, that would be helpful. I would guess that it is a conifer, but not a pine because the needles to not seem to be clustered into fascicles. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ looks like Araucaria and Cryptomeria $\endgroup$ Aug 28 '16 at 19:33

The tree in question belongs to the Araucariaceae family,

There are multiple species of Genus Araucaria,

I'd place Araucaria araucana on the first place, but there are multiple others:

Araucaria araucana

Araucaria luxurians

Araucaria columnaris

Araucaria subulata

    $\begingroup$ Just FTR, the tree in question is not A. auraucana (Molina) K. Koch. A quick image search will show you that A. auracana has much larger, robust leaves. $\endgroup$
