    The Form prescribes that change of more than 50% of the trutees/functionary only to be intimated. If there is no change in key functionary and change of other functionary (trustees) is less than 50% still the same has to be informed ?

      If change is less than 50% then no need to file such form.
      However, my advice is to file whenever there is change in board members as a good practice
