As per a report in IWM, a family member of the Bachchans stated that the decision of the transfer of Prateeksha in Shweta's name was taken much before. However, the bungalow was kept locked since Amitabh's mother's demise in 2007. Now, along with Shweta, her kids, Navya and Agastya are also the co-owners of the bungalow. The source can be heard saying:

"It makes sense. Prateeksha has remained unoccupied since the past two decades. Bachchan Saab has kept it locked after his mother's death in 2007. Prior to that he divided his time between Jalsa (the Bachchans' current residence) and Prateeksha where his parents lived. The decision to make Shweta and her two children Navya Naveli and Agastya, the owners of Prateeksha was taken long ago. Paperwork was a mere formality."
