Dear Mr Dungriyal,
You are correct. It looks like ginger to me. The leaves in the
background also look like ginger.
Regards
Yazdy.

Could it be Black Turmeric (Curcuma caesia)?

Dear Friends,
My apologies, It is turmeric. I had not checked after zooming the
picture. The leaves are broad unlike ginger. I have shown it to a
friend and he confirms that it is turmeric.
