Hi

So the first piece of advice is that you need to hire a Lawyer to represent yourself in the Court. When a Summon is sent under Cr.PC Sec.107, you are left with the following options:

1. You need to appear in the Court and tell the Magistrate that you have not committed any offence under Cr.PC 107 and you are ready for the inquiry.( Of-course you will opt for this option, when you are sure that you are innocent). Once the inquiry is done and you are proven innocent, all charges against you are dropped.

2. If you accept that you are guilty under Cr.PC 107, then you need to pay the Bond fees and your activity is monitored for next couple of months to ensure you do not repeat such an offence.

3. If you agree for the enquiry and the charges are proved against you, then also you are required to pay the surety/ Security amount.

4. Also, on the date when you first appear in the Court and give your consent for the inquiry, you will be required to fill an order sheet. It signifies that from that date till next 6 months, the enquiry should be completed. If the enquiry is not completed within those 6 months, the charges against you automatically gets dropped. 

So its always advisable to hire a Lawyer who is well aware about the provisions of Sec.107 Cr.PC and can represent you in front of the Magistrate
