The Israeli Prime Minister would be received by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad on his arrival on January 14.

Netanyahu would then be holding most of his official meetings in New Delhi on January 15 and 16.

The Israeli leader would also be going to Mumbai on January 17 where he would be visiting the Jewish Chabad House, a site of 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, sources said.

He would head back to Israel on January 18. There could also be a possible stopover in Agra during the visit.
