This happen to my idea number as well. The only thing that I did today is 1) recharged my account 2) swapped the SIM in my mobile from SIM 2 to SMI1 3) I had same deduction on 22 Aug- exactly after 1 month, they are doing it. this seems to from Idea Power Fun Zone which I did not use.

One of these triggered this change.
After every monthly recharge, my bal is deducting though I had not activated any service. Sms of deduction comes from 51998. In this month 2 times - dated 18/9/2020 deducted 3 Rs and 24/9/2020 deducted 10Rs. Stop these unnecessary deductions. I had tried many times for customer service but never available.
