Ahead of the visit, Netanyahu had said, "Well I would have preferred a different vote to be frank, but I don't think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel". Mr Netanyahu will be given a ceremonial reception on Monday, at the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

During his visit in July a year ago, PM Modi was received by Netanyahu at the airport, and was accorded the kind of welcome by every religious sect that is reserved for popes and U.S. presidents. He would then lead the bilateral dialogue at Hyderabad House where he will also have a one-on-one discussion with Modi.

Carmon said 11-year Moshe Holtzberg will also accompany Netanyahu and participate in a function at the Chabad House in Mumbai.

The road show is said to be an 8-kilometre drive from the airport to the Sabarmati Ashram.

After their initial greeting, the two leaders held their joined hands aloft as they posed for the cameras.

The prime minister's entourage includes the largest-ever delegation of Israeli businesspeople with representatives from the agriculture, water technology, cybersecurity, defense, health, and food industries.
