But will you be able to go to Darjeeling for the Durga Puja holidays? That is not clear. Benoy Tamang, who angered his party chief Bimal Gurung for suspending the bandh from 1 to 12 September, admitted the call had not really worked.
"We will appeal to people in the next few days to open schools, business and shops," Mr Tamang said in Siliguri after the hour-long meeting with Ms Banerjee.
Bimal Gurung, now in hiding as there is an arrest warrant out for him for several criminal cases, condemned Mr Tamang for the meeting. In an audio clip over Whatsapp, he said, "Not a single word said about Gorkhaland, police atrocities against Gorkhaland rallies continue. I will call off the bandh only after tripartite talks begin for Gorkhaland, political tri-partite talk with our MP and MLAs. "
At Kurseong, Mr Gurung's supporters held rallies shouting slogans against Tamang.
Ms Banerjee said Darjeeling is a much-loved part of Bengal adding that the demand of the hill people needed to be "permanently solved." She also offered financial incentives to government employees to get back to work right away.
The next meeting will be held in Ms Banerjee's office on October 16.
