Chandila and Shah appeared in person before the Committee on December 24 and were given time till January 4 to file a written response to the charges against them.
Chandila was earlier acquitted along with S. Sreesanth and 41 other accused in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal.
The infamous IPL controversy broke out during the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League, during which Rajasthan Royals cricketers Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan were accused of tarnishing the image of the game.
Special Cell of the Delhi Police had named 42 accused in the case in its charge sheet out of whom, six are absconding.
Earlier, the players were granted bail due to lack of evidence after the Delhi Police arrested the trio in May 2013.
Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and his aide Chhota Shakeel were also among the 42 accused in a 6000-page long chargesheet filed by the Delhi Police.
