Thanks but I’m looking for a free solution since the above costs $20, the fact that I need a paid solution to download my own photos from the cloud service for which I pay for seems very weird.
Then contact the Apple customer care and tell your problem. They will reply

Thanks. Upon visiting the support page I found out that the guide for downloading photos mentions the same steps which I used to follow then it clicked me that I downloaded the iCloud for Windows client from the Microsoft Store app inside Windows 10 as the default link on Apple's iTunes download page redirects there. I uninstalled it and installed the one from the Apple's website, now it is working fine:

Another example to not trust MS store for anything important related to drivers/clients & prefer download directly from software creator/manufacturer site.

T-Mobile will unlock any T-Mobile-bound phone that hasn’t been reported lost, stolen blocked, or been “associated with fraudulent activity.” The account associated with the device cannot be canceled. Ask T-Mobile customer service for an unlock by calling 877-746-0909 or using its online chat service.

So I was using paid Cloud services since 3-4 years on iCloud and Google Storage until recently I decided to let it go after purchasing a 2TB external hdd, my total in house storage is now 4.5 TB which I think is more than enough.
I was using 200GB of iCloud at Rs. 219 per month and Rs. 115 GB of Google at Rs. 130 and both were full since my phone storage is above these. If I'm upgrading, I'll have to pay Rs. 749 for 2TB in icloud and similar at google. Since I have purchased recently a 2TB drive that I think I have enough offline storage. I have downloaded all my data from cloud and now I am synchronizing with iTunes. Does backing up with iTunes also include Whatsapp chats/photos/videos? And if no, how to do that?

Your 2TB drive may one day suddenly fail taking all the data with it, that is why people prefer major cloud storage providers because they have much better redundancy than any home user. Just FYI you can get 1TB onedrive storage for ~2800/year & 6TB for ~3500/year in amazon oct sale(myself & @Vyom using it).

I have 1TB OneDrive storage as I use MS 365 personal plan @₹420/- pm but the seamless way in which data gets backed up in iCloud is irreplaceable & that one can share the plan with family members.

Monthly plans are much costlier, always get the yearly plan of office 365 from amazon oct sale.
