How to find ATMs with Rs. 100 and Rs. 500 Currency Notes

Many things have changed in Indian economy in last few days. PM Modi came up with a announcement about demonetizing old currency notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000. We have seen people making fun of old currency notes, looking for details of newly launched Rs. 500 and Rs. 2000 notes detail,etc. Once the decision was made, people came to know that ATMs are not at all calibrated with new currency notes and till the time ATMs are being calibrated, people have to withdraw currency in form of Rs. 100 notes only. It created sort of chaos around several areas and people had to wait in very long-long queues in front of almost all the ATMs in major cities like Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai etc.
