Webpage Redirected to VAS Activation Page: Idea Cellular

Few days back, I was browsing internet on my smartphone on Dolphin Browser. I tried to open and it got redirected to some shitty VAS page. (see below)

If you touch on YES, you will be deducted Rs 45 for 15 days. I was lucky that I was using Idea 3G that time with zero main balance.

And I touched on YES. In fraction of seconds, I got a text from 54300 (see below).

I am quite sure that this is not a fault from Idea, rather the website I was opening was redirected to this VAS site. But as Rs 45 will be deducted from your Idea main account, that means Idea has introduced a carrier billing for such services, website or whatever. 

Be safe online!
