Time limit prescribed is 90 days. Thereafter, the accused is entitled to be released on bail. For the purpose, he has to file a fresh bail application to the same court which denied earlier bail application or to the higher court.


The time limit in your case to file the chargesheet is 60 days u/s 167(2) of Cr.PC, which requirement if not adhered to, will entitle the accused to obtain default bail from the court.
