    Hello @Monish lalchandani Thank you for your interest in Microsoft Azure. Happy to answer any questions you may have!

    Based on the information you provided, I understand that you are seeing influx in the pricing for one of the VM that you spined up.

    The price of an Azure virtual machine (VM) depends on several factors, including the size of the VM, the region where it is deployed, and the pricing model you choose.

    For example, a basic A-series VM with one virtual CPU (vCPU), 1.75 GB of RAM, and a 32 GB OS disk in the US East region using the pay-as-you-go pricing model would cost approximately $13.52 per month.

    On the other hand, a larger D-series VM with 4 vCPUs, 16 GB of RAM, and a 128 GB OS disk in the same region using the same pricing model would cost approximately $174.08 per month.

    It's important to note that these prices are subject to change and may vary based on the specific configuration and usage of the VM. Additionally, there may be additional charges for data transfer, storage, and other services used in conjunction with the VM.

    To get an accurate estimate of the cost of an Azure VM, you can use the Azure pricing calculator - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/pricing/calculator/?cdn=disableor consult the Azure pricing documentation - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/pricing/details/virtual-machines/windows/

    In your case, I strongly recommend you contact Azure billing support team by raising a support request. The ticket enables you to work closely with the support engineers and get a quick resolution to your issue.

    Here is the link - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-portal/supportability/how-to-create-azure-support-request to create support case.

    FYI: Azure Billing and Subscription Management support is included in the Basic Support Plan without any charge.
