As Gurcharan Singh ji has indicated, this is Red-hot poker  (Family: Asphodelaceae), definitely kniphofia sp.

I feel this may be kniphofia uvaria.

Yes Prashant ji
It is K. uvaria. I had earlier identified on the basis of single species described in L. H. Bailey's "Manual of Cultivated Plants". I just now checked from Garden Plants Encyclopedia I got from Readers Digest some 30 years back.
