The court ordered his release on a personal bond of Rs 5 lakh and surety of the same amount.
Kalmadi was arrested nine months back in connection with a case registered against him and a few others for providing contract to a Swiss watch company to install the Timing-Scoring-Result system onprices that were five times of bids offered by the competitors.
Kalmadi caused a loss of Rs 90 crore in his capacity as the chairman of the CWGOC took personal interest in awarding the contract to the Swiss company.
He is expected to leave Tihar jail by Thursdayevening as he has sufficient time to organise execution of relevant papers and submit it before the court.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had opposed the bail plea on the ground that since the charges in this case are yet to be framed Kalmadishould not be granted bail.
The court also granted bail to 2010Commonwealth Games OC director general VK Verma.
