It is a plum but it is suffering from nutrient deficiencies, both micro and macro nutrients. You can tell this by the yellowing leaves with green veins on both young and old leaves. I don't know what fertilizers and amendments are available in India but in the US I would feed with any organic fertilizer plus I would add Iron Chelate because most fertilizers do not supply the needed micro nutrients.

Looks like iron deficiency because the newer leaves are yellow with dark green veins. From my experience though it can also be a watering issue. The nutrients are probably there its just the plant probably can't access it due to watering issues.

Greetings, welcome to the Forums.

I agree the plant pictured is suffering from nutrient deficiencies. Do apply a complete fertilizer.

As for the plant's identity, I would like to see more pictures when this plant flowers, and also when it produces fruit. Please do post again.

The name 'plum' is a common name that can be applied a wide variety of fruit trees, but the plant pictured does not particularly look a plum in the genus Prunus, which are the kind most commonly grown in temperate regions.
