yes...file a suit for specific performance of the agreement, check whether you are having a registered agreement or not and compel them to register the same as you are willing to pay the remaining part of the money owed....also depends whether there was a time clause for payment of remainder within a specified period, and if not paid then the sale may be annulled and the money refunded with interest due.

It has already been legally agreed between the seller and purchaser for the sale of an area of plot of land, so in this case their nothing much to worry about, just move and knock the doors of the Court.
