Allahabad HC amends rules, bail pleas to be heard two days after notice

In a significant development, the Allahabad High Court has amended a rule whereby bail application could not be heard before the lapse of 10 days from giving notice for such a plea, and has reduced the time period to two days now.

The High Court passed a notification amending the provision on September 19.

As per Rule 18(3)(a) of the Allahabad High Court, Rules,"(3) Save in exceptional circumstances: (a) No order granting bail shall be made on an application unless notice thereof has been given to the Government Advocate and not less than ten days have elapsed between the giving of such notice and the hearing of such application."

The High Court has now issued a notification amending the Rule, allowing an order granting bail to be made two days after notice of the bail.

The amended provision of chapter VVVlll Rule 18 (3) now reads, "(3) Save in exceptional circumstances:(a) No order granting bail shall be made on an application unless notice thereof has been given to the Government Advocate and not less than two days have elapsed between the giving of such notice and the hearing of such application."

According to lawyers, it will be a major respite for thousands of detainees who had to languish in jail for at least for 10 days before their matter was placed before the court.
