This plant belongs to the family Commelinaceae. I think a picture of leaf/leaves would help in species id.

Would you please explain how did you reach the species. 
I am not very confident in Commelinaceae. 
I would take this as an opportunity to learn new species with decisive characters. 
It would be also useful for those who follow to id species with characters. 



Thanks in advance 

Thanks and regards,
Giby

Binu ji and all:
Before this discussion goes any further... I would like to remind
Binu ji
of the posting guidelines.. .https://sites.google.com/site/
efloraofindia/posting-guidelines

which must have a unique subject line... (its number 9 in posting
guidelines)

and some basic information.. which you and copy paste on a word
document and re-use it thousands of time...


please follow these basic guidelines for a FRUITFUL INTERACTION with
the experts of the group,

who are as you see very helpful...

All are only too eager to help... but you must help us to help you...

Thanks
Usha di

Well said Ushadi Ji.

Several times I felt guesses are going wild because of the lack of supportive information.
Hope we get supportive information along with the id request not only to id the plant but also to learn the species with field characters as well.

Giby

Yes, Giby ji, thank you for agreeing with me...
 its very frustrating... to see ... time and again...
mistakes by folks who post and donot follow simple english directions..
and we in our enthusiasm  to help, respond and give the id and discussions...etc..
 but that should not be...
