Hi Raghav,


Wait one day and it should sort itself out. You will not be charged for more than 20% higher than your actual budget in any one day.

 

If it doesn't come right, contact AdWords support.

Your CPC is higher than the daily budget, so you're creating a difficult situation for the Google machine to handle. If it costs $13 per click, with a $1/day budget, then you may get one click for $13, and have to "wait" another 12 days before you can afford another click. Like @RobSkelton alluded to, it's average daily budget over the course of a month/30 days. If your budget is this limited, you may be better off just using automated bidding - Maximize clicks, and let the Google machine try to find you as much traffic as possible.
