The law provides that an accused/individual subject to trial may be exempted from criminal trial provided some certain conditions are met. Further this proposition in recent times has not only been applicable to Section 138, Negotiable Act (Cheque bouncing cases) but also to cases of a serious nature i.e. Warrant Cases and C.B.I Cases.
Section 205 read with Section 313 of the Criminal Procedure Code. Section 205 deals with exemption from appearance and Section 313 pertains to personal examination of the Accused. It is thus logical conclusion that if an accused is personally exempted from appearance in a summons case then the need for his personal examination is dispensed with as well.
