Need help with surety - solvency drama

Typical 498a case. 2 got Anitcipatory bail from session (Nashik) and one got Anitcipatory from high court. The session court bail amount is 15000 and high court bail amount is 20000.  

The police are now saying that they need to do notional arrest, before they file chargesheet. Which is ok, but we have produce our sureties during the arrest.

From what I understand, for amount 15,000 we simply need to submit ID and may  be bank/salary  documents which prove that surety can arrange 15000. However for amount 20,000, the surety should have a solvency certificate.  the relevant judgement section says

"be enlarged on bail on furnishing P.R. Bond in the sum of Rs.20,000/- with one or two sureties inthe like amount"

Now here is the problem

1.) Practically it takes aroun 1.5 - 2 months to get  a solvency certifcate for indvidual. The police is insisting that we do the bail thing at earliest

2.) For solvency certifcate, one should have an immovable property with no liabilities. But in these days of home loans, everybody has a liability. Getting such a surety is proving to be difficult 

Is there any other way out of it ? Can't we simply deposit cash and have a person sign a personal bond or something ?

I am kind of on a clock here. Your help would be really appreciated
