The Chidambarams were granted exemption after an application was moved, saying the accused were busy in the assembly election campaign in Tamil Nadu.
Karti Chidambaram has been asked to file an undertaking about his flight schedule and return date to India.
P. Chidambaram, the former union minister, is currently lodged in Tihar in the INX Media corruption case.
The chargesheet against Chidambaram in INX Media case is akin to producing a dead rat. It trivialises the case and raises questions about the credibility of the accusations.
They said the Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigating team is following the procedure after a local court on Tuesday allowed the central agency to interrogate the senior Congress leader in this case.
The prime minister Modi was speaking in Ranchi in poll-bound Jharkhand after launching a slew of measures including ambitious pension schemes for farmers, shopkeepers and self-employed persons
P. Chidambaram was last week sent to Tihar jail till September 19 in the INX Media corruption case, two weeks after he was arrested by CBI from his Delhi residence.
Weeks after he was arrested by CBI from his Delhi residence, Chidambaram was sent to Tihar until September 19 by a Special Court despite his lawyers requesting against it.
The court said the probes in the Aircel-Maxis cases have been highly belated by both the agencies as almost entire material was in their possession since the beginning.
The ED had been questioning Shivakumar over the past five days, and the Congress has accused the BJP of 'vindictively targeting' opposition leaders.
Surrounded by the security personnel, a smiling Chidambaram joined hands and said: '5 per cent. Do you know what is five per cent?', indicating it with his right hand.
The apex court asked Chidambaram's counsel not to press for the interim bail plea, which they had filed before the trial court on Monday and is scheduled to be heard during the day, till September 5.
The CBI and ED have sought custodial interrogation of Chidambaram and Karti after accusing the former of receiving kickbacks in lieu of granting approval beyond his capacity and benefitting certain persons.
Chidambaram's plea in the apex court has challenged the August 20 verdict of the Delhi High Court denying him anticipatory bail in the INX Media money laundering case lodged by the ED.
The court, however, refused to adjourn hearing in these cases on the pleas by both the probe agencies, which sought the adjournment on the ground that another case pertaining to INX Media scam involving the father-son duo was pending before the Supreme Court.
The case received a fresh twist after jailed Indrani Mukherjee turned approver in the INX Media case and gave testimony against Chidambaram, which largely forms the basis of the CBI case against the former finance minister.
Former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram was arrested by the CBI from his Jor Bagh residence in Delhi.
Minutes after Chidambaram, a former union minister, was arrested by the CBI in New Delhi, Karti said the case was apparently about events that happened in 2008.
