During the total shutdown, no oil pump was opened and the least number of vehicles was seen on roads. Most of the shops in market areas including streets were also closed, however, security personnel were seen conducting frisking and checking.

As this year’s Indian Independence Day falls on Sunday, there was not much impact on government employees in connection with the total shut down.
