For the past few days I've been noticing that the battery is draining terribly fast, a quick check in the battery details page revealed that my wifi is being used throughout the time my phone is on, even though the wifi is off in settings and quick songs notification panel. How's that possible?. Is it some app which is using the wifi?. But can the app use the wifi which is off? . My S4 is a GT-I9500 model running 4.4.2

WIFI is always ON in your example, but it is not the issue you are looking for.
You have to find what application ( or wakelock) is running in background when your graph is in AWAKE state.

Drain? What drain? There is absolutely no drain visible on the screenshot. Your screen uses power. That's normal for a screen to do.

Smart Stay and adaptive (screen mode) drains battery a lot so you should consider disabling it.

It came down from 95 to 13 within 7 hours, no games, no text's, 4-5 phone calls. Dats it. I once in a while turn on the screen for checking time and browse through my gallery. The charge went down 7% while i was typing this reply

As u can see from this graph, my phones charge came from 95 to 15% in just 7 hours, with hardly any usage. Is this issue hardware related, could a faulty battery be the culprit. My phone is just 3 months old and still under warranty, should i consider replacing it.

Look at your processes and see what is draining the battery.
