Could be anything, if it's ornamental. However, it would appear to be some kind of Pinaceae or other evergreen conifer. Possibly a juvenile hemlock or araucaria. I know that in Northern India there is Tsuga dumosa enter image description here

Maybe an Araucaria? enter image description here


Those pointed, awl-shaped leaves strike me much more as a member of Cupressaceae than the other conifers mentioned (Pinaceae, Araucariaceae). If I had to guess, I'd say some kind of juniper, Juniperus, though there are many other possibilities.

Are there any other features available, like berries or cones?
