Sir.
Surety is subject to the satisfaction of the court which grants bail. Normally any person who gives surety should be a known person of the accused having a title over an immovable property and remains solvent without any tax arrears on the property and that surety provider should not be accused of any offences and he should not have stood as a surety in any other cases.

Any adult working/business person can stand for surety. Depending upon the Judge/Magistrate, the documents required will be Ration Card, Aadhaar Card, Voter Id or Passport. Some Judges may insist on original RC Book of vehicle or property documents to be shown. Some Judges may insist on Government Workers to stand as surety. Then original Pay slip will also be needed or IT Returns Acknowledgement.
