In June, India along with Pakistan had become a full-fledged member of the SCO, a China-dominated security grouping which is increasingly seen as a counterweight to NATO.
"We attach special significance to the SCO in promoting political, economic and people-to-people contacts," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had attended the SCO summit in June in Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan.
The spokesperson said Ms Swaraj will have bilateral meetings with several leaders on the sidelines of the summit.
Asked whether she will have bilateral meetings with the Pakistan Foreign Minister or call on Chinese premier Li Keqiang, Kumar said her schedule is still being finalised.
"At this stage we cannot say anything," he said during a media briefing.
He said Ms Swaraj will reach Sochi on November 29 and return on December 2.
As an SCO member, India is expected to have a bigger say in pressing for concerted action in dealing with terrorism as well as on issues relating to security and defence in the region.
India's membership was strongly pushed by Russia while Pakistan's entry into the grouping was backed by China.
India had been an observer at the SCO since 2005. It has generally participated in the ministerial-level meetings of the grouping which focus mainly on security and economic cooperation in the Eurasian region.
The SCO had set the ball rolling to make India a member of the bloc during its summit in Ufa, Russia, in July 2015.
