Bail

Criminal bail refers to the temporary release of a defendant from custody, typically secured by a financial or property guarantee, with the understanding that the individual will return for court appearances and comply with other conditions set by the legal system. It is a legal process aimed at balancing the principles of justice, protecting the rights of the accused, and ensuring public safety.


When a person is arrested and charged with a crime, they may be eligible for bail based on factors such as the severity of the offense, the defendant's criminal history, and the likelihood of them appearing in court. Bail allows individuals to await trial outside of jail, helping them maintain their jobs, family responsibilities, and overall well-being during the legal process.

Bail Types

  • Regular Bail

Regular bail, often simply referred to as "bail," is the release of an individual who has been arrested and is awaiting trial or resolution of their case. This type of bail is granted by a court and allows the accused person to be released from custody under certain conditions until their trial or legal proceedings are concluded. The purpose of regular bail is to strike a balance between the presumption of innocence and the need to ensure the accused person's appearance in court.

  • Anticipator Bail

Anticipatory bail is a legal remedy sought by an individual in anticipation of their arrest. This type of bail is applicable in jurisdictions where certain offenses are categorized as non-bailable, meaning that the police have the authority to arrest the accused without the possibility of obtaining bail immediately after arrest.
When a person fears arrest in connection with a non-bailable offense, they can approach a court to seek anticipatory bail. This legal provision is designed to protect individuals from potential harassment and unlawful detention.

  • Default Bail

default bail is a legal provision that allows an accused person to seek bail automatically if certain conditions are not met by the prosecution within a specified period. This provision is enshrined in Section 167(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), which outlines the rights of an accused who is in custody during the investigation.

Default bail is a crucial safeguard to prevent prolonged and unjustified detention of individuals during the investigation phase. It ensures that the prosecution completes its investigation within a reasonable time frame, respecting the principle that an accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty. It underscores the importance of timely and efficient criminal investigations in the Indian legal system.
