India has been struggling to cope with the sudden demonetization of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes with people increasingly impatient with the hardships they are being forced to endure with the promise of a better future. Like any natural calamity, Google has stepped in to do its bit here, included a nifty link on its Google Search home page which will help you find all the ATMs nearby.
The link will be displayed both on Mobile as well as Web (PC) version of search and will display all the ATMs nearby after automatically detecting your location. However, it will not show if a particular AtM has cash or not as these days most of the time, most of the ATMs are getting drained of cash very fast. One reason we see long queues outside Banks for both deposit and exchange. It will also not tell you if ATM is in working condition or not. For that we would recommend you go to cashnocash.com or atmsearch.com. Tools like CMS ATM Finder and Tools app can also come in handy. However, there is still no way to find the details about the queue at each bank. Though, social media might come in handy in some situations.
On the one hand, where Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi is urging India's public to have patience, the clock is truly ticking on people's patience, with more and more stoties of extraordinary hardship tumbling out. Thankfully, the date for select places accepting the demonetized notes has been extended to November 24th, 2016. As of now, there is no daily limit to withdraw cash from banks while from ATM's it is Rs 2500. The weekly withdrawal limit has been increased to Rs 24,000. While the exchange limit has been increased from Rs 4000 to Rs 4500.
