The unrest in Kashmir has led to massive loss to the economy of the Valley, with transport businesses being badly hit due to curfew and shutdown. The owners and drivers have expressed their problem over the issue and said that they are not getting any help from the administration.

The relaxation in curfew came only on Monday after 51 days since the ongoing unrest that began onJuly 9. As many as 71 people including 68 civilians and three policemen have been killed and over 11,000 injured in the unrest that started in the state after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani by security forces.
However, separatist shutdown continued in Kashmir on Tuesday despite relaxation of curfew in the Valley. Except for Pulwama town and two police station areas of Nowhatta and MR Gunj in Srinagar, there was no curfew elsewhere in valley.
