(a) It may issue a warrant for the levy of the amount, by attachment and sale of any movable property belonging to the offender. (b) It may issue a warrant to the Collector of the District, authorising him to realise the amount as arrears of land revenue from the movable or immovable property (or both) of the defaulter. In such cases, the Collector must realise the amount in accordance with the law relating to recovery of arrears of land revenue, but no such warrant can be executed by the arrest or detention in prison of the offender.
If the sentence directs that, in default of payment of fine, the offender is to be imprisoned, and such offender has undergone the whole of such imprisonment, the Court cannot issue such a warrant unless, for special reasons to be recorded in writing, it considers it necessary to do so, or unless it has ordered the payment of expenses or compensation out of the fine under S. 357 of the Code. A warrant issued under clause (a) above can be executed within the local jurisdiction of the Court issuing the warrant, and it can authorise the attachment and sale of any such property outside such jurisdiction, if it is endorsed by a District Magistrate within whose local jurisdiction such property is found.
If an offender has been sentenced to fine only, and to imprisonment in default of payment of such fine, and the fine is not immediately paid, the Court may— (a) Order that the fine shall be payable either in full on or before a date not more than 30 days from the date of the order, or in two or three instalments, of which, the first should be payable on or before a date not more than 30 days from the date of the order, and the other or others at intervals of not more than 30 days each; (b) Suspend the execution of the sentence of imprisonment, and release the offender on the execution by him of a bond, with or without sureties, conditioned for his appearance before the Court on the date or dates on or before which the payment of the fine (or the instalment thereof, (as the case may be) is to be made. If the amount of the fine or any instalment is not realised on or before the last date on which it is payable under the order, the Court may direct the sentence of imprisonment to be carried into execution immediately.
