Can I get Bail if I am arrested for taking or giving Dowry?

Getting or not getting Bail, in any case, depends upon the nature of an offense. If it is a bailable offense, then the accused can get Bail. However, if the offense is Non-Bailable, then you are not likely to get Bail. The position in cases of taking or giving of Dowry is as follows:-
- Taking or giving of Dowry is a non-bailable offense. Hence, you cannot get Bail if you are arrested for taking or giving of Dowry
- This has been provided under Section 8 of the Dowry Prohibition Act 1961
