The dawn-to-dusk Talcher shutdown called by a citizens' body demanding steps to contain air pollution and land subsidence affected vehicular movement and train services in the town on Wednesday.
The band was called by Talcher Surakshya Samiti.
The shutdown also affected train services. Some trains were delayed as activists of the samiti staged a 'rail roko'.
Shops, business establishments, markets, educational institutions and offices remained closed in the town located in Angul district.
However, emergency services including ambulance and healthcare facilities were kept out of the purview of the bandh, a police official said adding the bandh remained peaceful with no untoward incident reported from anywhere.
Convenor of the samiti, Balaram Kunda said the shutdown was called to press for a four-point charter of demands including immediate safety measures in underground coal mines and to prevent land subsidence.
