Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since the size of the stone is large it definitely requires surgical management. Price of surgery will depend on the hospital. It is best you take treatment from Government Hospital or Medical College affiliated Hospital for subsidised rates.

Hi well come to Hcm.
Laser is not surgical procedure. It is called Lithotrypsy.But since you have a small stone of 4.8[should be mm] you can wait and consult urosurgeon.Charges differ from
hospital to hospita and Doctor to Doctor. You should find out as per your affordability.
