No vehicle will be allowed to enter or leave the district during this period, he said.
During the lockdown, shops and kitchen markets will remain open from 7:00am until 7:00pm, reports a news agency.
Hospitals, clinics, medicine shops, banks, financial institutions and emergency services will remain out of the purview of the restrictions.
Strict action will be taken against if anyone violates the restrictions, the DC said.
