Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru came to Delhi to head the interim government in 1946 and stayed at 17 York Road (now Moti Lal Nehru Road) Lutyen Zone bungalow, which came to be recognised as the first official residence of Nehru. He lived there till August 1, 1948, before he moved to the Robert Tor Russell designed Teen Murti house. When India got freedom on August 15, 1947, Pt. Nehru went to Red Fort to address the nation from this 17 York Road. 17 York Road was used as his headquarters during the whole period of negotiations for India's independence.
