You should first sent a legal notice intimating him about your willing to pay the balance sale consideration amount and thereby directing him to come and execute the Absolute Sale Deed. If he does not respondent then you can file a Specific Performance Suit against him. In the said suit you need to make him as the defendant or those who have executed the Agreement to Sell in your favour.

Issue a legal notice immediately informing him of your readiness to pay the balance amount and proceed for registration, if he does not reply or agree for your demands, then proceed to file a suit for specific performance of your sale agreement seeking for registration forthwith with the help from the court, immediately after filing the case deposit the balance amount into court showing your readiness to complete the registration, this will go a long way in determining the suit in your favour.
