There is a misconception that Section 324 is a non-bailable offence. However, as stated above it is a bailable offence. According to the Section 42 sub-section (f)(iii) of Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act, 2005 notification, section 324 of Indian Penal Code,1860 is not non-bailable offence. Because of ignorance of this notification, in some of places, the persons ,who arrested for the offence under section 324 of IPC, could not get bail immediately, despite it is still bailable offence.
Hope this provides the answer.

Section 324 of Indian Penal Code,1860 is now bailable offence not a non-balibale offence after amendment in Section 42 (f)(iii) of Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act, 2005 (No. 25 of 2005) Notification dated 21st June, 2006 in the Gazette of India, which says section 324 of Indian Penal Code,1860 is a bailable offence.
