What would be time limit for filing chargesheet u/s IPC 120-B r/w 420, 468 & 471 as also under PC Act -sec 13(2) r/w 13(1)(d)
I would like to have the answer & also the generaltime limit in any case for filing the chargesheet.
If the accused is under custody, period is 90 days, other wise it would be governed by 468 Cr.P.C.

Only in case of custody of accused and that only puropose of bail, otherwise no limit u/s 468 cr.p.c.
If person is in custody 90 days only purpose of bail . If chage sheet is not filled in that period person in custody has right of bail, otherwise for offence punishable more than 3 years has no limit.
law says charge sheet should be file within 90 days, but is not mandatary.
Since the sections involved have imprisonment of 7 years , section 167[a][ ii], the investigation has to be completed for bail purposes within 60 days and not 90 days. I differ on this point with my learned friends
