I am attaching here two photographs of the plant in question. This plant is a planted one in Areca nut (Betel nut) Garden. This is in a village called Tattikai situated in the high rainfall area of Western Ghats.
Kindly help me identifying this plant and I request you for some details on the plant.
I thank you in advance.

Could be some species of Zingiber.
In wilderness of Western Ghats we see Z. cernuum with a similar sight, though to me, the leaves seem slightly different in the posted plant


It is Zingiber nimmonii Dalz. a common ginger of Western Ghats.

Dear friends,

This plant is distributed in Karnataka, however could not gather any name in Kannada … help required from Kannada-knowing friends. Else tempted to put a generic name ಕಾಡು ಶುಂಟಿ kaadu shunti (literal meaning: wild ginger).
