Disc TB is not contagious unless and until your mother has pulmonary tuberculosis in addition.
There is no danger of transmission to small children.
Treament of tuberculosis is a standardized treatment and so you can consult any internal medicine specialist of any good hospital.
There are plenty of good hospitals in Bangalore and you may go to any of them.
