Dear Vinay

Intimation has to be given to factory inspector & Joint Director of Health & Safety with filled in prescribed forms containing details as to the number of employees, muster roll, reason of closure, type of closure etc. Also give intimation to ESI & PF office. Notification for Closure depends on the employee strength in the organization as per below mentioned

CLOSURE

An employer who intends to close down an Industrial undertaking wherein 50 workmen or more but less than 100 are employed or were employed during the preceding 12 months has to serve a notice to the Government in "Form Q" atleast 60 days before the date of intended closure stating the reasons for the proposed closure as laid down under Section 25 FFA of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947.

In respect of an Industrial undertaking employing 100 or more workmen on an average in the preceding 12 months, the employer has to obtain prior approval of the Government at least 90 days before the date of intended closure by giving an application in Form QA to Secretary to Government (Labour) as stipulated under Section 25(O)(1) of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947. A copy of the application shall be served simultaneously on the representatives of the workmen also.

The Government shall grant such approval, if it is satisfied with regard to the 'genuineness and adequacy of the reasons' stated for closure , the interests of the general public and all other relevant factors. The Government will communicate the Order within 60- days from the date of application for closure by the employer.
