Pictures taken at the Hiranandani Gardens, Powai, Mumbai in Feb, 2014 during TAW.
Another possibility is Alpinia luteocarpa, the Red Bamboo Ginger.
It is not A. luteocarpa. I have no idea.
I think it may be Alpinia vittata W.Bull, as confirmed by Prabhu Kumar ji in another post at Araceae, Arecaceae and Zingiberaceae Fortnight :: Zingiberaceae (Ginger family) :: Alpinia vittata from Hiranandani Powai, Lakeview :: ARKAUG-39
