date of the order, or in two or three instalments, of which the first shall be payable on or before a date not

more than thirty days from the date of the order and the other or others at an interval or at intervals, as the

case may be, of not more than thirty days.

(b) suspend the execution of the sentence of imprisonment and release the offender, on the execution by

the offender of a bond, with or without sureties, as the Court thinks fit, conditioned for his appearance before

the Court on the date or dates on or before which payment of the fine or the instalments thereof, as the case
