Boesenbergia pulcherrima 


It should be Boesenbergia tiliifolia as Sabu ji has stated in the following thread that B. pulcherrima is present only in NE India:

I cross checked eflora karnataka for an answer, I found it closer, hence identified as B.pulcherrima

Earlier it was misidentified as B. pulcherrima but now it is confirmed that it is restricted to NE India and South Indian specimens are B. tilifolia.
