SRINAGAR, Sept 16: The restrictions in Kashmir continue to be eased while the normal life remained disrupted for 43rd day today.
The markets remained closed. However, in the morning and evening some shops were open and people were seen buying essentials. The flea market at Polo-View was open today amid tight security and some people were seen busy in making some purchases.
The public transport was off the roads, but some private vehicles were plying. In civilian areas of Srinagar some autorickshaws were plying and at places on Srinagar-Anantnag highway, few taxis were also moving.
The attendance in Government offices remained thin. Majority of the employees report to the offices but leave home around noon that paralyses the functioning in these offices.
The schools remained open across the Valley but the students failed to turn up as parents are unwilling to send their wards to schools.
The mobile telephone services and internet including broadband services continued to remain suspended since August 5.
