The bandh, which started this morning, affected normal life in the eastern Meghalaya districts of Jaintia Hills, East and West Khasi Hills and Ribhoi districts.
Government offices, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed in most parts of these districts, officials said.
Vehicular traffic was also very sparse on the roads. Government offices were opened, but attendance was thin.
In Meghalaya, government offices recorded attendance of less than 10 per cent, East Khasi Hills district Deputy Commissioner Sanjay Goyal told PTI.
Security has been beefed up in all sensitive government installations, Goyal said.
Tribal NGOs like the Khasi Students Union, the Federation of Khasi Jaintia and Garo People and the Hynniewtrep National Youth Front called the bandh to press for their demand of stopping enrolment of voters alleging that the present system had scope for foreign nationals' entry in the voters list.
While the government has decided to do away with the special facilitation cells set up for enrolment of eligible voters at the DCs and SDOs offices in the four districts, it has set up an all-party committee to study the issue.
