Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
For most part i have understood your question also but i didnt quite understand the bagirathi street part.
Not all tremors are related to parkinsons. A main differentiating feature is difficulty in initiating movements.
If you say you have taken him to a leading hospital then they would have thought something, taken a complete history, did some clinical examination to label it as parkinsons.
So i dont doubt the diagnosis. But if yiu still want a second opinion, take him to a different  neurologist and get him checked out there.
Best regards.
