India money question

HI guys , I will be going to India next Monday for few month, I am a bit concern about the money situation and do not like to carry tons of cash .
1)is it easy to change money ,should I take only small bill($20>$50) or do they take $100 bill also.
2)does the ATM system work well in India.

This will be my first time in India and my experience with ATM or $100 bill in many countries in SE Asia push me t ask these question.

Thanks for any help

You shouldn’t have any problem locating an ATM in majority of the cities, especially if you are using credit card.

I agree, lots of ATMs everywhere. Money exchangers too.
Just make sure to get enough cash when you are entering areas like ladakh. Otherwise, every big and small city has solution to your problem.
