A contempt notice has also been issued to the publishers of the Indian Express for publishing the comment that criticised the apex court.
The court has asked Singh to appear before it on Oct 23 with his response.
Singh in an interview with the newspaper allegedly faulted the Supreme Court judges who heard his case to prove he was a year younger than the army records provided.
He said that if he had won, he would have been eligible for an extra year in office.
However, the General dropped his case in January after Supreme Court judges indicated he was likely to lose.
