Jal shakti, oil, steel and the environment were among those summoned for the meetings, they said.
These meetings are expected to continue for several days, the sources added.
The cabinet meeting, which is chaired by the prime minister, usually takes place once a week and the cabinet meeting once a month. The cabinet meeting takes place practically every Wednesday.
