Criminal Bail

The concept of bail, which is a fundamental part of the Indian criminal Jurisprudence and it is well recognized theory among all the judicial systems of the world.

Bail is, in law, the purchase of a release from prison of a person awaiting trial or appeal by submitting bail to ensure timely submission to the legal authority. The monetary value of bail, also known as bail, or, more accurately, bail bond, is determined by the court having jurisdiction over the prisoner. The securities may be cash, papers titled to the property, or private individuals of the instrument or bonds of a professional bondman or bonding company. Bail is forfeited if the person released on bail fails to surrender at the appointed time. Courts have more discretion to grant or deny bail in the case of individuals under criminal arrest.




The issue of bail is one of liberty, justice, public safety and burden of the public treasury, all of which insist that a developed jurisprudence of bail is integral to a socially sensitized judicial process
