Dear Shobha Ji,
The plant in the attached photo is a monocot plant which can be said from the parallel venation of the leaves. Common name of this plant is Princess Lily it was named after Princess Diana its a hybrid plant hence its scientific name is Alstroemeria 'Princess Grace' .Alstroemerias commonly known as "Peruvian Lily" or the "Lilies of the Incas" are all native to South America, mostly Chile and Brazil belonging to the family Alstromeriaceae. There are about 50 species and they are all in the  family. Read a bit about this plant from wikipedia in the attached link...

This is an Alstroemeria hybrid (Peruvian Lily) (Liliaceae). Exact parentage is probably impossible to determine. They are common garden and cut flower plants here in California, USA.
