Apart from attending a lunch thrown by the Visva-Bharati University vice-chancellor, he and other delegation members are also scheduled to watch a cultural programme at the university campus.
The team, which will be accompanied by the Deputy Speaker of West Bengal Assembly, Bhaktipada Ghosh, will leave Santiniketan for Kolkata on the same day.
Lord Paul had remarked on Tuesday that to him going to Santiniketan was like going on a pilgrimage.
