Seen the attached pictures in efloraofindia. I think it is a Zingiberaceae species. 
Am I correct, if so, would you please let me know the species?

Thanks Giby ji,
I was in fact struck by the leaf resemblance to the Spiked Ginger Lily
plant which is found aplenty here..
Thank you for taking so much trouble

Alok
