-- Steps To Reproduce:

- One monthly cycle forward event with charge of 10 Euro
- One monthly cycle arrear event with charge of 20$ Euro
- One session event which should charge 0.80 Euro per sec

2.Create an account with above product

3.Generate ip usage for a duration 7200 secs so it charged 7200*0.8=5760 E

4.Change the pricing product information for session event (ip usage) from 0.8 to 1.1 per sec.

6.Business param for pipeline rating is disabled.

7.Ran the pin_rerate
