If your sister is a citizen she needs to apply for I-130. Once I-130 is approved she will be called for the interview in local consulate. Normally it takes around six to eight months.

If your mother is already here she can apply for I-130 and I-485 together.

Thanks for the information.
Do we need visa no available for this catagory.
We brought our mom with us ,at present she is here only. Can we apply AP also, because she needs to travel for my Dad's 1 st anniversary pooja.My concern is visa no availability for this catagory.

Visa numbers are immediately available for parents of citizens. If your sister is a citizen, your mom will not have to wait for a visa number to be available.
