What is Bailable Offence?

Legal Definition
When a person commits a bailable offence, they are arrested or detained without warrant by an officer of a police station, or appear or are brought before a Court, and they are in the custody of the officer during any stage of the proceeding before the Court gives bail, and they are then released on bail. If the officer or Court thinks fit, the arrested person may be released on a personal bond without sureties. With a bailable offence, the arrested person needs to file only the bail bonds and no application is required.
