Pl.clarify these points-
1. What are the reasons for the intented closure
2. Is't a Co or a partnership or a proprietorship
3. Does all the 200 are permanent employees or some on permanent roll and some are temporary/contract labour?
4. Any Union(s) recognised/regd & in operation there? And they are in know of things what's your intention?
5. How many years this hospital is in operation?
6. Is this earning profit or loss making and still operations are going on as usual.
7. What registration your hospital have?

For closure, you will have to follow the procedure laid down in Industrial Disputes Act 1947. It will also have to be ascertained whether your hospital is covered within the term "industrial establishment" or not. You will appreciate that due to closure, services of the employees are terminated, hence there will be labour unrest. Therefore, before initiating any action in furtherance to closure, you must consult Labour Lawyer.

The closure of Hospital has to be dealt under the ID Act. These are my suggestions-
1. Try to introduce a VRS, under which whoever willing can avail the benefits under this scheme and will be treated as voluntarily retired. In respect of contract labour you have to issue adequate notice to the contractor reg.proposed closure;
2. Rest will have to be issued advance notice termination with required compensation as per ID Act. Consult the Labour Dept. for taking adequate steps.
3. Parallelly file application with the state govt.(Labour & Director of Industries/Health Dept.)for approval for termination & closure of hospital;
4. Once the formal approval is received rest of the compliance can take place.
5. You may engage an able advocate for compliance of all these procedures.
Some of the relevant provisions & procedures under ID Act is discussed in the attachment.

Overview: The awaited introduction of Labour Codes contains certain provisions also relating to closure and other relevant subjects. My hunch is even if you apply now your application may be delayed resulting consideration under new regime of Labour codes instead of extant provisions. Come Dec.2020 you are likely to have a clear picture on this. You may consider this aspect also.
