Mr Sharma has now been allotted a new bungalow at 10 Akbar Road, near BJP's national headquarters on 11 Akbar Road in central Delhi in a street well-lined with dense green trees, an official in the Tourism Ministry said.
The minister had earlier said the Urban Development Ministry had asked if he had any objection to vacating the house. He had, in his reply, said the place was more important to the President than him.
The 10 Rajaji Marg house is spread over an area of 11,776 square feet with the ground floor housing a library and an attached reading space.
