Wang Qi, 77, was received by his close Chinese relatives, besides officials of the China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Indian Embassy when he arrived here along with his son, daughter-in-law and grand daughter from Delhi-Beijing flight.
He had left for his native country after five decades earlier today.
The incursion came just weeks after the end of the Sino-Indian War of 1962 - a month long conflict and India granting asylum in 1959 following the Tibetan uprising.
Following his stint in jail, Wang was relocated to the remote Indian village of Tirodi in Madhya Pradesh where he ended up marrying and settling down.
Wang, who has always been known as the "man with no country", arrived at his hometown of Xi'an, the capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province at around 6pm after a short flight from the Beijing.
A Chinese man who was trapped in India for more than 50 years has finally been reunited with his family.
Unfortunately Wang, who lives in Madhya Pradesh in India with his Indian wife and children, was unable to make it home before his mother died in 2006.

"After all these years, he is finally coming back", Wang Shun said as he prepared a quilt for Wang Qi.
It is not clear if Mr Wang plans to return to India. I saw a vehicle and asked them to help me. He was never granted citizenship and was given a Chinese passport in 2013.
Wang spent the next few years in different prisons until 1969 when he was released, but his wish to return to China was denied.
"Three officials from Chinese Embassy in India met my father and talked to him for more than an hour".
But his case was made public and he was visited by Chinese diplomats who promised to take him back.
Though his story has been published by Indian media several times in the past, a recent BBC TV feature on him was widely picked by the Chinese social media highlighting his plight, prompting the Chinese government to initiate action in coordination with India to facilitate his return.
