The ED had summoned Singh in the money laundering case on April 18 and had said that he must appear before it on April 20.
Earlier, the ED had summoned him on April 13, but he failed to turn up.
The senior Congress leader had earlier allegedly avoided summons to get his statement recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
He is said to have excused himself by referring to his official commitments.
The agency's move came after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a chargesheet against Singh and others in March for allegedly amassing assets worth Rs 6.03 crore.
The ED had filed a criminal case under the PMLA against Virbhadra Singh, his wife Pratibha, Life Insurance Corporation agent Anand Chauhan, his associate Chunni Lal, and others in 2015 following the CBI's FIR dated September 23, that year.
The case was registered after a preliminary inquiry found that Singh as Union Minister from 2009 to 2012 allegedly accumulated assets worth Rs 6.03 crore, which were disproportionate to his known sources of income.
After his Delhi farmhouse was attached, the Chief Minister accused the Centre of harassing him and destabilising his government.
