I guess you only can take airplane. So this route is just for your reference: You can fly to Delhi first, then fly to Hongkong, next fly to Jinan airport. When you arrive Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport, you can take shuttle bus line 1 to Jingshi Road Shanda Road Station, and transfer to bus k139/k171/k202 to Jingshi Road Keyuan Road Station, and walk north of 300m to it.

You must fly to China first because I can't think about other ways you can reach. When you arrive mainland China, maybe you can take train to Jinan.

The intercity bus departs from 10:30, 12:30, 14:30, 17:00, 19:30 with CNY130 and 4 hours on the way. The ticket counter is obvious so you can follow the signs in the airport. You can only buy it on the spot.
