Consider that in the 1920s and earlier, almost the entire population of the Indian subcontinent (much bigger than modern India) was entitled to travel to, live and work in the UK. Yet very few were successful in attempts to do so and no bombs, machine guns, air raids, or poison gas were used to stop them. Only the few privileged and wealthy ones, such as Mohandas Gandhi, were successful.

90 years ago, it was too expensive for the lower-class. And there weren't direct flights between the UK and the Indian sub-continent

Absolutely the middle class came and were welcomed--they came by ship.
Post independence there was free movement--the main problem was that there was a strict limit on the amount of money that could be taken out of India. Even in the 60s people came by ship.

(In the last few days an agreement between the two countries on the return of illegal immigrants and the sharing of information on criminals.--)

The thousands who arrived in the 60s were not middle class.
Many were the children of refugee sikhs displaced due to psrtition or agricultural workers from the Punjab.
Many arrived by air, recruited in India by Labour agencies.set up by Indians in the UK.

I was speaking of the middle classes who financed themselves, as mentioned in the above posts. Both before and after independence.
They came by ship, I don't know numbers, I only know 'people'.
Those who came later many were persuaded into the NHS! The numbers you describe were obviously greater.
Those from the West Indies also came by ship.
