best option is for your sister to file for divorce if her husband is a drunkard and dosent take care of her .   your sister can claim maintenance  and other relief's in the divorce petition . dont make the mistake of gifting any property to her husband . he would sell the same to meet his drinking needs

Your sister may apply for divorce on the ground of spousal cruelty by her husband. She can claim maintenance and compensation for the agony suffered by her.
