We explore the shifted model with as a distinguishing physical parameter for the study of constraints at local scales. The corresponding dynamics confronted with different geodesics (null and non-null) along with their conformal analog are investigated. For null geodesics, we discuss the light deflection angle, whereas, for non-null geodesics under the weak field limit, we investigate the perihelion advance of the Mercury orbit in f(R) Schwarzschild background, respectively. The extent of an additional force, appearing for non-null geodesics, depends on . Such phenomenological investigations allow us to strictly constrain to be approximately with a difference of unity in orders at galactic and planetary scales and seem to provide a unique f(R) at local scales. Our results suggest that the present form of the model is suitable for the alternative explanation of dark matter-like effects at local scales.
