The min­istry of elec­tron­ics and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy has sought an ex­pla­na­tion from Face­book by June 20 on the data shar­ing agree­ments it has with man­u­fac­tur­ers of phones and other de­vices. The move comes af­ter sev­eral re­ports al­leged that Face­book al­lows phone and other de­vice man­u­fac­tur­ers ac­cess to per­sonal in­for­ma­tion of users with­out their con­sent. Ear­lier in March, the gov­ern­ment had sought re­sponses from Face­book on queries re­gard­ing In­dian data on its plat­form.
