Above process is also known as Solvay Process. This reaction occurs in two steps.

First step,

NaCl + CO2 + NH3 + H2O NaHCO3 + NH4Cl(l)

First Ammonia converts into Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and Ammonium Chloride.

Second Step,

2NaCl + CaCO3 Na2CO3 + CaCl2

So, in the next or second step, there is the formation of Sodium Carbonate.
