The 12-hour Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) areas bandh given by Twipraland State Party evoked a mixed response on Monday.

The bandh was given by the party against the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB).

Police said that government offices, banks, educational institutions, shops and markets were open in some parts and were non-functional in some places under the TTAADC areas.

According to the officials, most private and passenger vehicles were off the roads.

Barring a few stray incident, no major untoward incident was reported from anywhere in the TTAADC areas.

Examinations in colleges were rescheduled in view of the dawn to dusk strike as a precautionary measure.

The TTAADC has jurisdiction over two-thirds of Tripura’s 10,491 sq km area, home to over 12,16,000 people, mostly tribals.
