Can an accused file for a plea bargain during the trial instead of before the beginning of the trial?

To answer your query,
As per Section 265B, CrPC, any person accused of an offence may file an application for plea bargaining in the Court in which such offence is pending for trial.
The process of Plea Bargaining is a pre trial procedure. Hence, the application is to be filed before the trial.
Hope this helped.

Are there any exceptions to this wherein a plea bargain application can be filed during the pendency of trial?
