Shops, petrol pumps and other business establishments were shut in several areas of the city, they added.
The shutdown was intense in the downtown areas, the officials said.
Public transport was less, but private cars and auto-rickshaws were plying unhindered, they added.
There were reports of shutdown in certain areas of the other districts of the Valley, the officials said.
