"Yes, he Manmohan Singh has moved to Motilal Nehru Marg," an official from the PMO said.

He shifted here after attending the swearing-in ceremony of his successor Narendra Modi at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The bungalow is built on a three acre plot with expansive lawns at the front and back. The bungalow was home to former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit but she vacated this place after facing a humiliating defeat in the Delhi Assembly elections last year.

The bungalow had been recently renovated and special focus was given on beefing the security around the house including new entry-posts erected at the entrance and corner. A huge sliding iron gate has been erected at the entrance, in addition to the main outer gate.

Manmohan Singh and his family would continue to be guarded by the elite Special Protection Group (SPG).
