@Arjan, I want to know the reason about not to refunded eventhough bounty period is expired – mahesh Dec 29 '10 at 16:48
Hmmm, when bernd_k read that page, he did find the answer... – Arjan Dec 29 '10 at 17:02

From How does the bounty system work?

If no answers meet these criteria, the bounty ends without it being awarded to any answer, and is not refunded to the bounty starter.
