The court had earlier issued summons to Digvijaya Singh to appear before the court.
The matter would be heard next Jan 31, 2013.
The court's order came on the defamation complaint filed by Gadkari Oct 1.
Gadkari said in his complaint that the Congress leader dragged his name into alleged irregularities in the allocation of coal blocks. The BJP leader recorded his statement in the court that he was "not responsible for any coal block allocation to anybody".
