It totally depends on the nature of the traveling adopted by the person going to China. If you are planning to go on a suave business trip or a family vacation, then the budget can vary between 1500–2000$, inclusive of all charges per head.
However, if you are the ‘Bodhi Dharma’ backpacking types planning to have a cultural adventure at China, then you would be hustling your entire journey in the range of 800–1200$. I’d advise to take a flight from India to China with least flying distance, and then travel to the rest of China via well built high speed railway systems(HSR).
Least flying distance in this case is from Kolkata(IND) to Kunming(CHN), and a round trip from here would cost you almost half of the other major flying routes in and out of India.
Traveling by HSR in China is relatively cheaper to flying, and you can get as far as Beijing sitting in a comfortable class for as low as 140$.
Traveler tip: After spending some time at Kunming, go for Shenzhen as you can further proceed for Hong Kong, sitting in a metro!
Next station Hong kong!

There are many options you can choose from.
For Instance, you can choose China Eastern Airways from Kunming to Kolkata for about $250 one way or around $420 for a return trip.
Please, be specific about your route i.e from which Indian city to which Chinese City, what kind of Airline(LCC/Full Service) etc.
