In my opinion hospital is an industry under ID Act. 99% of the hospitala are commercial.
As per sec 2(ka) of the Act ,industrial establishment or undertaking means an establishment or undertaking in which any industry is carried on:
For chapter's V-A and V-B ,establishment means factory,plantation and mine .For chapter V-B this meaning applies to lay off ,retrenchment,closure,transfers etc.But in V-A this meaning is limited to lay off only ie,for sec 25A to 25 E only. The word used in chapter V- A for retrenchment,closure ,transfers etc is undertaking.
So chapter V-B applies only to factories,plantation and mine employing 100 or more workmen . For an undertaking which is industry ,other than factoty,plantation and mine employing 100 or more workmen chapter V-A will be applicable, for the purpose of retrenchment, closure and tranfer of undertaming.
So I think for closure of a hospital follow the provisions of sec 25 FFA and sec 25 FFF,where in the word used is undertaking, not industrial establishment.
