Saroj ji, I think your plant is Curcuma caesia, having a deep violet-red patch which runs through the length of the lamina is characteristic for this sp.
Thanks 
 
Nayan.

This is not Curcuma caesia. Its rhizome os dark blue. Here it is more yellowish. Leaves and inflorescence is required for correct ID.
