I have been using Samsung Galaxy Y Duos.

Last week I've updated the version of Google Play Store. From that time on, the internet packet data usage has hugely increased, it is consuming a lot of packet data in background and even the battery time had reduced to half of what it was before.

I would like to know if there is some issue with the newest version of the Play Store.

It would be helpful if you could add Play Store version number. – Suraj Bajaj Nov 21 '12 at 13:58
There was a notification that a new version of play store is available and then i updated to that version. Is there any way to find the version number manually – Sahil Mahajan Mj Nov 22 '12 at 5:28
Play Store >> Settings >> Build Version – Suraj Bajaj Nov 22 '12 at 5:54
Have you disabled automatic app updates in the Play Store settings? – Matthew Read Nov 22 '12 at 20:11
I've heard anecdotally of people having excess data downloading by Android OS recently, but I haven't heard that Play Store was the cause. Chances are people are still figuring this out. – Lisa Dec 5 '12 at 3:50
