Any valid NOTAM for the mentioned aerodromes will shortly after the mentioned time be re-processed with the new location indicators.
In addition, despite no information published by India, the changed FIR boundary will cause also aerodromes FURSATGANJ (VIRB) and Jabalpur (VAJB) to change FIR from Dehli (VIDF) and Mumbai (VABF) FIRs, respectively, to Kolkata FIR (VECF). Due to basic system functionalities, any valid NOTAM for VIRB and VAJB will also have to be re-processed with new FIR VECF.
