The meeting lasted for nearly an hour during which issues related to economic crimes, collection of intelligence and procedural hurdles in bringing back black money were discussed, the sources said.
It, however, sparked speculation of a message being delivered by the Government for Sinha to proceed on leave but there was no official confirmation.
Sinha was asked by the SC yesterday to recuse himself from the investigations in the 2G Telecom spectrum scam.
Additional Director R K Dutta has been given the charge of investigation in the case.
Sources in the government said besides Sinha, the meeting was also attended by Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha and the chiefs of Enforcement Directorate, Financial Intelligence Unit among others.
Due to retire on December 2, Sinha had yesterday suffered a major blow when the apex court removed him from the 2G probe, saying the allegations against him of protecting some accused appear to be "prima facie credible".
The court had handed over the case to the senior-most officer after Sinha in the investigating team probing the spectrum scam.
