Authorities lifted the ongoing curfew from four districts of the Kashmir Valley on Sunday as the law and order situation showed minimal improvement.
Districts were Badgam, Bandipora, Baramulla and Ganderbal, police confirmed.
Officials said curfew would continue in some parts of Srinagar city.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh met several delegations on Saturday in Srinagar.
Important local trade and industry bodies including the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) and Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) decided not to meet the Union Home Minister despite an invitation from him.
Reports said the home minister told the delegations that the ongoing unrest was generated by "forces from across the border".
