The collateral for the bail amount provided by the bailor and retained by the Court would only be released or refunded to the bailor upon the final conclusion of the case.
If a fixed deposit or savings account was used for purposes of bail, the relevant document which was submitted by the bailor can be collected from the Finance Section of the State Courts. Before proceeding to the Finance Section, the bailor must first obtain a written confirmation from the officer of the Court (where the case was completed) authorizing the Finance Section to release the collateral.
If cash was used the bail amount will be refunded to the bailor’s bank account upon the final conclusion of the case. You should remember that where cash is used as collateral, the refund will only be made to the bailor’s bank account. Requests for refunds in cash or by way of cheque or for payment to be directed to any other person will not be allowed.
