      You can but I highly recommend to take a backup from the recovery menu if you have TWRP Custom Recovery.

    Yeah if you’re on another ROM then you will lose your apps and data.Take a proper backup first.I recommend to useTitanium backup to take backup of your apps so that you can easily restore all of your previous apps and data

      First take important backup of your data then factory reset it then check for update.If there is any update available in your region then you can update to the latest firmware via OTA.

      You can install other Lollipop ROM on Yureka plus.Search for Yureka Plus Lollipop ROMs on google.I am sure you will find some good ROMs.Installation process is same.

    @sachidananda If you are getting signature verifications failed error then Install TWRP On your device and Flash the ROM File Via TWRP Recovery Instead of Stock Recovery.
