       Mariners are requested to notify the Chief Hydrographer to the Government of India, National Hydrographic Office,
and Post Box No. 75, Dehradun -248001, INDIA immediately on the discovery of new dangers or suspected dangers to
navigation and of changes or defects in aids to navigation. A Hydrographic Note (IH 102), which is a convenient form on
which to send in a report, is attached with Notices to Mariners Editions dated 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October.

                                              EXPLANATORY NOTES

Charts and Positions         The Notices in section II give instructions for the corrections of Indian and Admiralty Charts
including the information on new Indian Charts and Publications. Geographical positions refer to the horizontal datum
of the current edition of the largest scale chart unless otherwise stated. Bearings are true reckoned clockwise from 000o
to 3590; those relating to lights are from seaward. Symbols referred to are those shown on the chart 5020.
          Alterations to depth contours, deletion of depths to make way for new detail, etc; are not mentioned
unless they have some navigational significance.
         Blocks and notes, if any, accompanying notices in Section II are placed after Section VIII.
Temporary and Preliminary Notices These are indicated by (T) and (P) after the notice number and are placed in
Section III. A list of those in force published quarterly and text are published in Annual Edition of Indian Notices to
Mariners. Charts are not corrected for them before issue, they should be corrected in pencil
on receipt.
Original Information A star adjacent to the number of a notice indicates that the notice is based on original
information.
Sailing Directions Corrections for the sailing Directions are given in Section VI. A summary of corrections in force
will be issued in Section VI of the Edition dated 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October.

Lights When a light is affected by a notice its Lights List number is quoted. The correction of the Light List is given in
Section VII and should be incorporated as per instructions given on page 11 of the list of Lights. It may be published in
earlier or later Edition than the chart correcting notice.
          The range of a light is the nominal range; geographical range is given in parenthesis if less than the
nominal range.
Radio Signals The corrections in Section VIII should be cut and pasted in the appropriate volumes of the List
of Radio Signals.
Radio Navigational Warnings Updating information is published by fortnightly Notices to Mariners supplemented by
the radio warnings for items of immediate importance. It should be borne in mind that they may be based on reports
which can not always be verified before promulgation, and that is some time necessary to be selective and promulgate
only the more important items to avoid over loading users; the reminder being included in the revised Edition of the
charts and publications concerned.

Laws and Regulations While in the interest of the safety of shipping, the Hydrographic Office makes every endeavour
to include in its publications details of the laws and regulations of all countries pertaining to navigation, it must be
clearly understood: -
         (a)      that no liability whatsoever can be accepted for failure to publish details of any particular law or
                  regulation, and
         (b)      that publication of details of a law or regulation is solely for the safety and convenience of
                  shipping and implies no recognition of the International validity of the law or regulation.
Correction of Charts and Publications by the users Indian Notices to Mariners contains important information and
should be used to keep the specified charts and books up to date.

THE USE OF CHARTS AND ASSOCIATED PUBLICATIONS
Reliance on Charts and Associated Publications While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information
on Indian charts and other publication, it should be appreciated that it may not always be complete and up-to-date. The
mariners must be the final judge of the reliance he can place on the information given, bearing in mind his particular
circumstances, local pilotage guidance and judicious use of available navigational aids.

         The positions of Hydrographic objects shown on the Indian charts and publications are given in Everest da-
tum. However, the positions of vessels obtained from Global Positioning System (GPS) are on World Geodetic System
1984 datum. There will always exist variation in position obtained by visual fixing (Everest Datum) and GPS position
(WGS 84 datum). Before plotting GPS positions on charts, datum shift values given on the chart are to be applied in
order to agree with the charted position. These datum shift values are not uniform, particularly in areas off Andaman &
Nicobar and Lakshdweep Islands, as these places are not strictly adjusted to mainland network (datum). Mariners are



                                                            2
advised to use alternate source of position information particularly when closing the shore or navigating in the vicinity
of danger.

Charts Charts should be used with prudence; there are areas where the source data are old incomplete or of poor qual-
ity. The mariners should use largest scales appropriate for his particular purpose; apart from being the most detailed,
the larger scale are usually corrected first. When extensive information (such as new hydrographic survey) is received,
some months must elapse before it can be fully incorporated in published charts.

        On small-scale charts of ocean areas where hydrographic information is, in many cases still sparse, charted
shoal may be in error as regards position, least depth and extent. Undiscovered dangers may exist particularly away
from well-established routes.

Further Guidance The mariner’s Hand Book (NP 100) gives full explanation of the limitation of charts. In their own
interest, all users should study it.
