The US social networking giant has drawn intense criticism from users and governments globally over the data leak scandal that hit millions of users.
Information of over 80 million Facebook users was allegedly harvested by data analytics and political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica, leading to a global backlash against the company.
The Indian government had questioned both the companies on the impact of the data breach, following which Facebook had admitted that nearly 5.62 lakh people in India were "potentially affected" by the incident.
