Curfew was on Friday lifted from the entire Kashmir Valley following improvement in situation in all the 10 districts, four days after it was clamped following violence sparked by the Amarnath land transfer row.
Amid tight security, an uneasy calm prevailed in the Valley with people opting to stay indoors and shops remaining closed, official sources said.
The separatists had given a call for a shutdown on the occasion of Independence Day.
The violence in the Valley has left 22 people dead since Monday. The situation showed signs of improvement since Thursday barring stray incidents.
