New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: The Vodafone-Idea mobile connection became the centre of talk on Tuesday, but this time not for its slow internet speed or tacky network. Many Vodafone users took to social media about inadvertently deducting Rs 99 from their mobile account balance towards 'International roaming rental for 30 days'.

A lot many users pointed out that they haven't been to abroad in the recent past, but still money had been deducted from their accounts.

Vodafone, however, clarified that due to a 'technical error', Rs. 99 has been erroneously charged from the account of its prepaid users, and while apologising for the stated ordeal, said that they are crediting the amount erroneously charged back to the prepaid balance.

Vodafone share price increases up to 14%

Many Tweeples were quick to identify that after erroneously charging Rs. 99 from its users as 'International roaming rental', Vodafone's share price ended up increasing by over 14 percent. A few of them drew the parallels between the two events.

Vodafone's account deduction raises the humour quotient
