    effective or effectively

    Hi all, can you all explain to me why I should use the word of effectively instead of using the word of effective in the following sentence?

    This will be strictly enforced effectively on 12th March 2014.

    The original word is effective but someone tell me it should be changed to effectively.

    Thanks.

    Re: effective or effectively

    It should be "effective" but "on" should be deleted.

    Re: effective or effectively

    Does 'enforced effective' mean 'enforced to be effective', where 'to be' can be omitted?

    Re: effective or effectively

    "Effective" refers to the date.

    Re: effective or effectively

    Does 'effective 12th March 2014' mean 'with effect from 12th March 2014'?
