It said both Lavrov and Wang are expected to have bilateral meetings with external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.
Lavrov and Wang are also expected to call on President Ram Nath Kovind.
During the visit, Lavrov will deliver a lecture at a think tank on 'Global Affairs and new vistas of Russia-India cooperation'.
