I collected this plant species from North Andaman at an altitude of 400 m, provided whole plant, leaf, flower and fruits image.
Requested to please provide ID.

Strobilanthes sp. ??

Staurogyne sp. ?? But looks different from Staurogyne andamanica M.V.Ramana, Sanjappa, Venu & Chorghe

I have seen the calyx lobes in this collected “Strobilanthes” specimen, it has, 5 partially fused lobes.

Its Strobilanthes perplexa J.R.I.Wood, as confirmed by John Wood.

Previously given the name Strobilanthes perplexa J.R.I.Wood by mistakenly name given, the correct identification is Strobilanthes violifolia T.Anderson actually he confirmed this name.
