The provisions of Section 438 Cr.P.C. for anticipatory bail are not applicable in U.P. as a result of which you cannot get anticipatory bail in U.P.


However, you have an option to file a petition before High Court to quash the F.I.R. and may pray for stay of arrest, which you may get, if you have some grounds. You can contact some Lawyer.

It is better to ask your Lawyer in the matter. He might have given the undertaking to this effect in the bail application or in the affidavit.

M unable to understand as to y the members r misguiding the visitors regarding the provision of AB in UP. Dear members of LCI kindly note it down that the provision of AB has been back in UP after a long period of 30 years. It happened 3-4 months earlier.

You are an advocate pl give the act, its passing and date of notification for AB provision in UP.

Anticipartory bail provision is not there in  UP BUT STILL AS PER SC DIRECTIONS HIGHER COURTS CAN GIVE INTRIM BAIL.


Res Shashi Ji

The UP cabinet has approved the bill  only for the amendement in the Sec.437 CrPC for having ancipatory law provisions in UP .

Bill has not become act upto now .

Wait for another time and UP shall have anticipatory law provisions

I got arresting stay and case transfer to medation center allahabad. If medation failed than what I have to do..please advise.


Rakhi Madam,

The provision of AB has not been made applicable in U.P. so far. However, it is under process and may start very shortly.




I'm surprised to see your's ignorance, m sorry to say. 


Rakhi Ji,

Please give details of the G.O. or Act through which the AB has been introduced in U.P. and also the date from which it has started in U.P.

Rohit - don't get confused, hire a good lawyer and get an arrest stay. AB isn't there in UP, Period!

I had got arrest stay in a similar case several months back. In case you are unable to fetch an arrest stay, ask your lawyer to push for an interim bail (same day bail) which is very common in Allahabad High Court.

As I said key to your success is a GOOD LAWYER.

Where in UP has your wife lodged this FIR?

Mind you, arrest stay is only applicable until the charge sheet is not filled. Will later write you a detailed note on how to go forward.

thanks for your advice, she is from Aligarh, UP.

Please provide me your contact details so that we can contact you.

Anticipatory Bail in 498a

Anticipatory bail in 498a is advisable and recommended

A family comes under pressure when they come to know that a FIR under section 498a has been lodged in police station.

The first cause of stress is call be Investigating Officer to join investigation to old parents, husband, husband sister or brother.

The trauma is whether they can be arrested or not.

It is not advisable to visit investigating officer without protection from the court this protection is termed as Anticipatory Bail.

The process of getting Anticipatory Bail in 498a

The chances of getting bail under 498a is quite high as I have already discussed in detail in one of my articles

chances of getting anticipatory bail 498a 

The conditions of anticipatory bail are not very stringent but if they are stringent it can always be challenged. I have discussed in detail the conditions Conditional Anticipatory Bail 498a/406

Now as per the judgement of 498a under Rajesh Sharma versus State of Uttar Pradesh. there is a stay on automatic arrest in the cases of 498a. But this judgement is challenge in higher bench and revisit the judgement.

Anticipatory Bail in 498a

Therefore still the permission of getting kin and husband arrested is less. But family will never know whether the permission of arrest is granted or not so there is an apprehension of arrest in 498a and therefore it is advisable to get 498a.

Grounds to argue 498a bail application

  1. Old parents this ground works if parents are old.
  2. Prior divorce petition pending.
  3. Strong roots in society
  4. Ready and willing to join investigation.
  5. Vague allegations
  6. Delay in filing FIR
  7. Return of streedhan articles.

Courts View

Courts will ask for status from the IO. Gen really IO will tell the court that whether permission of arrest is granted or not and if it is not granted then the court will most probably grant interim protection of arrest for certain period of time i.e 7 days so that the IO. will send notice of arrest and on this notice the party will again apply for anticipatory bail in such circumstances.

This is right strategy to abate any arrest circumstances.
