Vijayasankar,
This looks like Tacca chantrieri to me:

I could be wrong though!

You should be right Tabish ji.
 
The sessile nature of inner involucral bracts good enough to confirm your id. Sorry for my carelessness (without referring floras i named it just by looking at the entire leaves ), and thanks for correcting me.
[in T. integrifolia, the inner 2 involucral bracts suppose to have long stalk http://flora.huh.harvard.edu/china/PDF/PDF24/tacca.pdf].

With regards
