The US with 12,000 requests is at the top of the list. Facebook, however, paid heed to only 50 per cent of such requests from India.
"Governments make requests to Facebook and many other companies seeking account information in official investigations. The vast majority of these requests relate to criminal cases, such as robberies or kidnappings," Facebook said.
"In many of these cases, these government requests seek basic subscriber information, such as name and length of service. Other requests may also seek IP address logs or actual account content," it said. UK, Germany and Italy follow US and India in the list.
 The UK made 1,975 requests, Germany 1,886, while Italy made 1,705 requests about user data. France placed 1,547 requests during the period.
