Sources said the former chief minister has been asked to respond to the notice within a week.
Earlier this month, PWD had sent a letter to Kejriwal asking him to vacate the house as he had already crossed the 15-day deadline for staying in the official accommodation.
As per norms, a Delhi government minister can stay a maximum of 15 days in his official residence after demitting office without paying market rent.
Kejriwal in return had sought an extension to stay in the house till his daughter's examinations got over in May.
According to sources, the notice was issued to Kejriwal after taking the Lt Governor's approval.
The PWD sent the letter to Kejriwal after the Urban Development Ministry had asked the Delhi government to return the flat which had been allotted to Kejriwal as chief minister. Read: Kejriwal moves from Kaushambi to Tilak Lane in Delhi
