Before you ship your possessions to India, you'll need to know first which shipping container to use. You can either use a 20-foot container or a 40-foot one. A 20-foot container will hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house. A 40-foot container will hold the same volume, along with a car; it can also accommodate the contents of a 4- or 5-bedroom house.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
