Hi from Greece,if idling revs up only while you depress the brake pedal ,there might be a vacuum leak at the servo unit.If high reving happens irrespectable of braking,then the fault might be a tight accelerator cable,a vacuum leaking from a hose or elsewhere at the intake manifold area or an electronic fault from a sensor or throtle valve position potensiometer.Althougt my answer isnt "feroza" specific,hope it helps.Regards.
