The investigating officer of the case is expected to record her statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act or PMLA. She will be confronted with the statements made by DK Shivakumar and others, they said.
Ms Hebbalkar had earlier confirmed to news agency Press Trust of India the receipt of the summons to her.
DK Shivakumar, arrested by the Enforcement Directorate or ED on September 3 in a money laundering case, was on Tuesday remanded in judicial custody for 14 days till October 1 by a Delhi court.
The former minister was in the probe agency's custody since his arrest. The agency had earlier summoned his daughter Aisshwarya in connection with the case and had recorded her statement.
Three other alleged associates of DK Shivakumar have also been questioned by the ED.
It had in September last year registered the money laundering case against DK Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and others.
