    My phone is 2 years old now and still working superb. I don't I need to change device till next 2 more years. But the problem emerged as my charging slot in phone has become wide enough that it doesn't accept my type-c cable. Please let me know that is it possible to change the charging slot? And if yes, what will be the cost of it in Indian Rupees?
    Thanks in advance

    First try to clean the port. Its usually dust accumulation.
    Use a thin plastic tool and scrape it out.

    Check the cleaning part. If it doesn't work, you can reach out to service centre to replace it.

    I think this will come under hardware adjustment and it should taken ~ Rs. 500 plus some labour charges.

    Have a look here https://www.oneplus.in/support/repair-pricing/details?code=9

    This seems to be a ball park number, actual charges may depend on final diagnosis by the service centre.

    I cleaned it already. Slot has become so free that the 'click' sound when charged inserted doesn't come.

    Ya. That's because dust and lint are jammed in the bottom of the port. Pry it out.

    Don't pry anything use contact cleaner spray buy from local hardware store or Amazon or eBay it's simple and please don't pry the type c port is fragile use 1inch soft brush along with contact cleaner it will fix your issue

    Before you decide on changing the part, find someone who has a new cable and see if you get that click sound when inserted into the phone. Could be the cable that's the problem.

    Contact cleaner spray can be very corrosive, I would not use it on a phone.

    Then it's best to just use plain Isopropyl Alchohol, which evaporates quickly and is not corrosive to electronic parts.
