What is Difference Between Regular Bail, Interim Bail & Anticipatory Bail?

Regular Bail

Regular bail is granted by a court to a person after his arrest. When any person commits a non-bailable offense and cognizable, the police take him into custody. After the police custody period ends, then the accused should be sent to jail. Under sections 437 and 439 of CRPC, such accused can be imprisoned. We can therefore say that the accused may be released from custody to ensure his presence in a regular bail trial.


Interim Bail

Interim bail is granted for a brief period of time, it is granted by the court during the pendency of any application or it is granted until your application for regular or anticipatory bail is pending before the court. It is given with some conditions.

Anticipatory Bail

Anticipatory bail is granted to a person even before his arrest, in the fear that he may be arrested for some time in a certain criminal offense.
