You please go through the attached images of A. calcarata, A. galnga and one paper of A. purpurata.
I think it is sufficient for you for the identification of the plants from field.
If you want the detailed description then i will send that later.

Attaching a collage of Alpinia galanga (KULANJAN/ GREATER GALANGAL). People at this place called this plant PUNDI. There is a place PUNDIBAR, where an agricultural university is located. Locals tells me that the tender inner part of the plant is eaten. The plant is a favorite of elephants.
