Taking suo-motu note of reports, the IT Ministry has also asked for a detailed factual report.
The statement said the recent reports claiming that Facebook has agreements, which allow phone and other device manufacturers to access its users' personal information, including that of their friends without taking their explicit consent.
It said that in response to earlier notices about breaches of personal data relating to the Cambridge Analytica episode, Facebook had apologised and given strong assurances to the government that they would take sincere efforts to protect the privacy of users' data on the platform.
"However, such reports raise uncomfortable questions about the assurances made by Facebook," the statement said.
In case of data leaks to Cambridge Analytica, Facebook had admitted 335 people in India were directly affected through an app installation, and another 5,62,120 people were potentially affected as friends of those users.
