Hi Azure billing team.

I didn't exceed the free tier limit of Microsoft product but surprised to see the bill of INR 18 thousand.

I am unable to see the usage cost by azure billing portal. When i go to azure billing section get error. neither able to raise support ticket from there, when i click on help & Support option to raise a ticket , time watch machine keep spinning.

I called to Microsoft customer care number many times but always get a message " line is busy"

Please is there any one from billing dept who can help me on this issue.

@InderSharma-7696 Sorry for the inconvenience this must have caused!

I do understand that you have raised concern over 18k billing on your Azure subscription that were once used and are now deleted. To resolve this issue, we need to perform billing validation through Azure billing support.

Looking at the error details it seems that you do not have appropriate/restrictions permissions on this subscription that blocks you from raising a support request. Could you kindly check with your subscription owner to grant you access to raise billing support request?

Thank you very much Sadiqh Ahmed for your reply.

I am the only subscription owner. I created azure account through yahoo email address and subscribed for free and Pay As you go service.

there is no other user or email address were used to register/subscribe azure service.

i can still remember when i was going to delete azure resource group, tenant etc that time cost and billing portal were showing INR 0. I know because i never exceed the free tier limit of any service.

If i would have exceeded the limit then i should get payment alert on March, because I created account on 19 Feb 2022 and deleted on 14 March 2022 so billing should generate next month cycle ie March.

Please note - I am unable to raise support ticket through azure portal. As i click on help and support get error of authentication. Please see in screen-shot once again![195651-1.jpg][1]


please help how can i get resolve this issue.

As mentioned in the previous post, we need to perform billing validation of your Azure subscription to understand what went wrong that caused you billing of 18k. Looking at the error details it seems that you do not have appropriate/restrictions permissions on this subscription that blocks you from raising a support request. Could you kindly check with your subscription owner to grant you access to raise billing support request?
