It is a compoundable offence, so if the settlement has been reached then the  complainant can withdraw the complaint by making a statement in the court to this effect. The accused may be exempted from personal appearance in the court if the complainant appears personally to make the statement.

If there is a compromise arrived between the parties, by filing a petition by the complainant the court may dismiss the case mentioning that the  complaint not pressed the matter owing to out of court settlement.  In that case the accused need no appear before court even though there is a NBW pending agaisnt him.  Once the case is dismissed the NBW becomes infructuous.
