Anticipatory Bail is granted after the registration of FIR but BEFORE a person is arrested by police. If a person apprehends that he might be arrested, he may apply for an Anticipatory Bail.

Regular Bail is applied for by a person AFTER his arrest. Since he has already been arrested and in the custody of police, he has to apply for Bail.

Interim Bail is like a temporary bail which may be granted till the time your application for Anticipatory Bail or Regular Bail is pending before a Court.

Anticipatory bail is the bill where an  individual can seek or request to get bail in anticipation or in expectation of being named or accused of having committed a non-bailable offence, whereas when the court grants a bail on some condition for a specified period of time it is called as Interim Bail, which are mentioned under Section 438 of the Criminal Procedure Code. And, Regular bail is applied for by a person after his arrest, since he has already been arrested and is in the custody of police and thus he has to apply for bail.
