For your next child, there are some banks in the US that are much more affordable than the one you went with; such as Americord Registry which offers cord blood storage for $1999 with 20 years of storage included in that fee
you could store it in india, but the fees it would cost to transport it to and from india would probably cancel out the difference in storage fees. for future reference, i found this comparison page of all the major US cord blood banking companies, you should check it out if you need any more information. http://cordadvantage.com/product-comparison
