Pl. Check comparative images at efi site
Pl. also check comparative images at efi site at Sonerila 

Difficult to say without specimen. But it will fall under maculata/ khasiana.

I could not find any images of Sonerila khasiana except for the type specimen at 
Some images of Sonerila maculata are given at links below:

May I request you to pl. confirm this as per your images at http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Spotted-Leaf%20Sonerila.html
I also request you to post your images in our group so that these are included in efi site.

This does look like Sonerila maculata, but with some variation in leaf and flowers; maybe a result of local variation??
Also attaching a photo of Sonerila maculata photographed in Cherrapunjee area, Meghalaya in 2017 as per your request. Will send you some more photos shortly.

Sonerila species with comparative images so far in efi 


To me appears close to images at Sonerila maculata Roxb. rather than Sonerila khasiana as per comparative images at Sonerila

Sonerila khasiana C.B.Clarke ?? 

Thanks, ... To me appears close to images at Sonerila maculata Roxb. rather than Sonerila khasiana as per comparative images at Sonerila
What are the other species reported from your area?

Sonerila khasiana and S.tenera are also reported

I was confused because of white sopts on leaf of S. maculata.

Sonerila tenera looks different as per Specimen in GBIF  Flickr  Novataxa  Flowers of India  FRLHT
