I use my laptop for the entire day and shut it down late at night. The LED lights continue to stay even after I shut down. Seems like the hardware continues to work too. It takes more than the usual time required for shutting down a laptop. I also looked up for help in the windows site but nothing really helped me out. Is there any fix for the issue?

That's normal behaviour for Windows 10. It's a smoke-and-mirrors type illusion to make the user think that Windows has shutdown quickly. It is in fact still shutting down long after the screen has gone black.
If you're still concerned that your laptop is taking too long to shutdown fully then the Windows Event Viewer's performance diagnostics section is the best place to look as it frequently names the culprit responsible. When you know its name then you can do something to fix it.
Is there any benefit (other than a fast start up) of letting Windows 10 do a fast shut down? I noticed that after the latest Windows updates Windows needed a full restart before the updates would work properly.
Using the info in Fruit Bats link to force Win 10 to shut down completely is by far the safest way to go.
