Then they would have to move the International HQ to the US, or all the  
western sections would break off and start their own, new TS.

Very few outside India know how deeply many theosophists were involved  in
the Indian Independence movement and of course everyone knows Annie  Besant's
political activities for which she was elected the President of  Indian
National Congress. While we may not see it, even today TS enjoys  support
from a lot of politicians past and present.

Years ago,  Indian Govt passed a law requiring all Indian corporations to
have 51%  local control. IBM's Indian subsidiary was 100% owned by IBM USA
and Indian  Govt did not budge and IBM chose to close down the business in
India. If  the GC goes on meddling with the Rules and a handful of members
try to  seize control of TS, we should not be surprised at a legal  challenge.
Furthermore, considering the importance of Adyar, and TS as a  tax-exempt
religious charitable organization, it would not surprise me if  the Govt
passes a law imposing majority Indian control of all tax exempt  charitable
organizations, which would include TS. This would be a permanent  slam dunk
to end all machinations.
