In the central areas of Mysore, though most of the shops remained closed, many were kept open as well. The traffic too was dried up in areas of importance like Ramaswamy Circle, City Bus stand, etc. where heavy traffic could be seen on normal days.

But the strike showed no significant effect in the residential areas. Shops remained open but the traffic was a little leaner than usual.

As a whole, even though the services like public transport, banking, and schools remained closed for the day, there were no disruptive effects on the lives of people, especially in the residential areas.
