India's financial capital Mumbai crawled back to normalcy on Monday, a day after the city bid adieu to Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray, who was cremated with state honours at Shivaji Park on Sunday.
The Shiv Sena on Sunday clarified it had not called for a Mumbai bandh on Monday.
"We have not called for any kind of shutdown," said party spokesperson Anil Parab.
On Monday, buses and taxis were back on the roads and trains were seen running on schedule.
Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking (BEST) buses also operated on schedule, said officials.
However, the Federation of Associations of Maharashtra (FAM) asked the trading community to shut down in Maharashtra in order to observe 'Shradhanjali Day´ for the Shiv Sena supremo.
The bullion market, Zaveri Bazar, also remained closed.
Schools that were scheduled to re-open on Monday after the Diwali break will resume from Tuesday.
Thackeray died on Saturday after battling ailments for days, ending an era in Maharashtra and national politics in course of which many opposed to his functioning struggling to come to terms with his brand of firebrand nationalism. He was 86.
