The query lacks clarity. What is meant by unregistered sale deed?
Bhaskaran Advocate (Expert) 19 December 2017
Article 54 of the Limitation Act says that the limitation for filing a suit for specific performance shall be three years. Limitation shall start running from the date of expiry of the time, if any, stipulated in the agreement. If no time is prescribed, from the date on which the purchaser gets notice that the performance is refused.

From the same, it is obvious that if any specific date is fixed as the date on or before which the sale transaction should be completed, then limitation for filing the suit for specific performance shall be three years from such date.

If there is a clause in the agreement prescribing a period within which the transaction is to be completed, then the LIMITATION for filing a suit for specific performance shall start running from the expiry of the said period.
Bhaskaran Advocate (Expert) 19 December 2017
To clarify still in easy terms in your case you got notice of refusal so you can file Specific Performance suit within 3 years from the receipt of that notice.
