As per the common terms of the sale agreement the biyana payment is non refundable, you need not pay him back, let him approach to the court to get it back, if you have marked your attendance in office of registrar , tehsildaar on the day of registry, then your case is solid.

Agreement to sell is always governed by the terms of the agreement. In case the buyer commits any breach then the bayana i.e.earnest money is forfeited if seller commits any breach then he has to pay damages. But be careful get your presence marked on the date when the sale deed is to be executed do whatever you can do to show that you ate always ready and willing to perform your part
