Ok, so I think I might have an idea for you. I don't know what's in India so I'll just show you what's available in Canada to maybe give you an idea. It's all from China anyway so I can't imagine that you wouldn't be able to get it there.

First, the case itself, the Cougar MX330-X Mid-Tower Case for $44CAD:

Link: https://www.newegg.ca/p/N82E16811553030
Now, you'll see that it doesn't have the ports you want but it has a slit in the front fascia because it has a 5¼" drive bay that could be used for an optical drive or...... THIS:

EZDIY-FAB USB3.0 Front Panel Hub for $31CAD:

Link: https://www.amazon.ca/EZDIY-FAB-USB3-0-Front-Panel-Charging/dp/B07P6H5CK7/

So, you'd be looking at $75CAD but Canadian Dollars aren't as valuable as US Dollars (don't ask me why when they have Trump as president...LMAO) which would end up being $57USD. You'll have FOUR USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and one USB-C in total.

That's as good as it gets for what you want to spend, but it does tick all the boxes for you. We Canadians are a nice bunch but we can get downright crafty when the need arises. LOL

I'll let you take the time and search for what you're looking for.

Fractal Design Meshify S2

Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C

Be Quiet! Dark Base 700

Corsair Crystal Series 680X

That took 2 minutes of googling.
Fractal Design Meshify S2 - Rs 12000 i.e 3 times the price of corsair h1110r
Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C - Rs 12000 i.e 3 times the price of corsair h1110r
Be Quiet! Dark Base 700 - Rs 21000 i.e 5 times the price of corsair h1110r
Corsair Crystal Series 680X - Rs 16500 i.e 4 times the price of corsair h1110r

All i need is Corsair H110R + USB C without paying 5 times the price for it.

I bought a thing with 4 USB 3 ports, that is mounted in one of the PCI card slot openings at the back of the case. It is just the four USB ports mounted on a piece of shaped metal… plus with four cables coming out of it; at the other end are 2 plugs for the USB header socket on the motherboard (2 ports per header). (Mine is USB 3.0; I am not vouching for whatever is most recent.)

It took me a while to work out what to search for. I think “USB header adapter adaptor” is right/best; add “mainboard” if it helps. The big difficulty was finding one with 4 USB ports, as opposed to 2. [Later: perhaps start with “ mainboard usb header adapter adaptor "4 port" ”.] It was mildly more expensive than I expected, but nothing untoward.

(Of course, you can compromise and use 2 of {2-port ones}. …Or just use 1 of 2-port one, and do without the other two USB ports.)

With this, you can buy pretty much any case you want, and have all 4 (or whatever the motherboard supports) USB sockets available. The (only) downside is the obvious one, that the ports are at the back. For the price difference, I think it is worth it . (I always position my cases with the opening side forwards, so that the front, back and internals are all somewhat accessible.)

The link to the product I bought is obsolete.
Here is what it looks like, conceptually.
eSATA & 2xUSB 2.0 Back Plate for Mainboard
Here is a 2-port one (otherwise) like I got.
USB 3.0 Back Plate for Mainboard 2 port
Here are some 2-port alternatives.

I hope this helps!

Edit_01.

You can also get ones that come out the front, in a drive bay. For that matter, you can get a front drive bay accessory with about 6 USB ports, an SD card reader, audio sockets and… everything.

p.s. What I got is not exactly what the OP wants, but I am sure they can translate the concept. If they wants just 1 USB C port (as opposed to all 4 supported), it should be pretty easy to find something… although conversely my offhand searches are not finding anything higher/other than USB 3.0.

Edit_02.
See perhaps…

(You could then use an extension cable.)
