Local commuter buses and metro rail services functioned normally on Thursday morning, despite a strike call by the opposition parties.
Auto-rickshaws also seemed to ply normally on the capital's streets. Some private schools had declared a holiday to avoid inconvenience to children.
At city markets, it was business as usual.
Delhi Police, however, have geared to meet the challenges that a bandh call might pose.
"In view of Bharat Bandh, police is ready to deal with any untoward incident," Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat told IANS.
