New Delhi, May 25 - New Delhi's much vaunted address 7 Race Course Road will get its newest occupant Monday night when Narendra Modi will shift to his new official residence barely hours after taking oath as India's 14th prime minister.

Sources told IANS that Modi will move to the house after he attends a banquet hosted by President Pranab Mukherjee Monday night at Rashtrapati Bhavan, located some three km away.

The dinner will begin soon after the swearing-in ceremony concludes at the presidential palace.
