Although all the App services in my case are being stopped 3 months ago:-

You can use the filters in cost analysis to find out which resource and which resource meters are generating the cost. This blog shows you how but uses a storage account as the example:https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/itops-talk-blog/step-by-step-finding-and-analyzing-microsoft-...

Azure App Service pricing also applies to apps in a Stopped state. See the FAQ at the bottom of the product pricing page: https://azure.microsoft.com/pricing/details/app-service/windows/#pricing
check your Azure Functions hosting options if you used other than consumption plan, it does not matter if you stopped service or not it will bill as per the app service plan billing rate .

@govindagoud all my app services are consumption based, as per the screen shot i provided

@Sonia Cuff all the app services i have are in consumption plan... and they are stopped... so how i can know which of these app service is causing the problem:-




what date time window you have been charged for azure function, try to narrow down the time in which charge has been done last time? does it charge every day even after stopped azure function? is it charged for storage account associate with function? .

A storage account is created by default with each Functions app. The storage account is not included in the free grant. Standard storage rates and networking rates charged separately as applicable.
As per my response, use the Filters in the cost analysis table to filter by App Service then group by Resource. Then you can click into a resource and group by meter.

Better to identify the app belongs to and remove from resource
