    Today I was trying to download and update some apps via wifi but later I discovered that it was on mobile data and I received message from Operator/Carrier that I have crossed my data pack limit and using it further will be chargeable.
    Is there any way to stop or prevent downloading apps when phone is using Data Pack?

    I don't believe there is a setting to turn off downloads while on mobile data. There is, however an option in the Play Store to only auto-update on wifi. I'd turn that on and just be careful about downloading apps on mobile data.

    Yeah I know. That option was enabled on my phone the day I bought it. I wish there were an option to prevent downloading on mobile data also.
    But there could be some solution for it sure.
