Please upload a picture with leaf and habit of the plant
From the flowers, I guess this could be a species of Impatiens of Balsaminaceae family
Sir I have no any complete plant photo. Plants growing in shady place at 700-900m msl.
On a close look it doesn’t look like a species of Impatiens
Let us wait for more comments.
You are right. This is Caulokaempferia secunda of Zingiberaceae,

Interesting wildflower from Ukhrul, Manipur. Ukhrul is at altitude of around 1600 m.
Looking at the leaves in long shots, I thought it belongs to ginger family. The flower closeup looks like a balsam species. I am clueless.
Any leads will be welcome.
This is Caulokaempferia sp.
Caulokaempferia secunda Zingiberaceae
Thanks a lot to …! Indeed it is from ginger family.
