The former Windies captain will not be a formal part of the team management but is visiting India in a dual role as a tourism ambassador and Red Force mentor.
The team is leaving for the sub-continent Monday after its final warm-up matches Thursday and Friday.
"I have an open door policy and while I am in India, I will be looking to assist Denesh Ramdin and his team, as much as I can," said Lara Thursday.
"The role is not official but I will be meeting with the board to finalise my role with the boys. Once is red, white and black, you are wearing, it is all about Trinidad and Tobago and I am here to assist in that regard."
Lara had performed a similar role as unofficial adviser to the T&T franchise during the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
"It's an honour to be part of the upcoming trip. I'm happy to be associated with Trinidad & Tobago's participation. We have a team that will make us proud," Lara said.
"I am just going to be there, not a part of management but as a former cricketer. I am willing to lend a hand in any way I can. I hope I will have a chance to interact with the guys while in India and in whatever way I can help."
Red Force will play one warm-up game before opening their campaign against the Brisbane Heat in Ranchi Sep 22.
