A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and R Banumathi had earlier said it would commence the final hearing on the pleas on February 21.
Teesta, her husband and the two NGOs - Sabrang Trust and Citizens for Justice and Peace - approached the apex court challenging the October 7, 2015, verdict of the Gujarat High Court which had rejected their pleas for defreezing their personal bank accounts.
One of the residents of Gulberg Society had filed a complaint against Setalvad and others alleging that money was raised to make a museum at Gulberg Society in the memory of those killed during the 2002 Gujarat riots, but it had not been utilised for the purpose.
In their plea before the apex court, the petitioners have alleged that their accounts were "illegally freezed" without following the due process of law.
