You will need to get in touch with customs here and get details or it could turn out to be more expensive than buying all that stuff from India itself .

First, you may not need all the stuff

second, customs is tricky for non TR stuff

three, it may not be worth the effort, some of the stuff might not work by the time it arrives

fourth - has your sister seen uk prices ? By all means ditch/sell the larger appliances like the washing machines etc.
