All markets, food grain markets and other establishments will remain closed during this period and the supply of essentials will be ensured through doorstep delivery.
The movement of trains and air services will continue but road transport will be shut down. Buses, however, will be made available to air and train passengers.
Petrol pumps and hospitals will function normally.
