Bail not Jail is the rule when it comes to imprisonment by Courts in India. Until and unless it is a must if the crime is heinous.
Three types of Bail in India
1 Anticipatory bail
2 Regular Bail
3 Interim Bail
Anticipatory before arrest , Regular after arrest and Interim is meanwhile any of the above Bail applications are pending before the court. It is like a temporary arrangement till the time your bail application is granted.
Two instances where it was granted are here.
P Chidambaram got Interim Bail till 7 August in Aircel-Maxis Money Laundering case involving his son also. Charge sheet was given by CBI on 19th July and thus his arrest scheduled but before that he applied for the interim bail. Court during Interim Bail can impose any condition what so may be reasonable.
In another case, the interim bail of the official was extended for four days by the court. The case pertains to criminal breach of trust against three officials from whose custody a file was stolen and they were unable to produce it before the High Court where a case was pending.
So Interim Bail is not a sure-shot thing but yes where the crimes are of less serious nature and not against society then interim bail in usual course is granted to prevent the arrest.
Usually interim bail is applied when a challan or charge sheet Is submitted to court.
