For the purpose of specific performance of Contract/Agreement, Article 54 of the Limitation Act - 1908 would apply.

As per Article 54 of the Act, Period of Limitation to file Suit for Specifi Performance is " THREE (3) YEARS".

But you should follow all the procedure before to initiate any proceedings under Specific Performance.

Your question relates to limitation in case of lis pendance. If you are not a party to that suit or have not raised your right therein then no limit can be extended for you and the same is under Article 54 of Limitation Act i.e. only 3 years from the date of contract/agreement. If you are a party to the suit and have raised your right and have even obtained stay order restraining its further alienation because of your agreement then automatically limit shall extend till the disposal of the suit. So you decide accordingly and do not waste time as limitation period is very less with you to further initiate.

If third party has filed suit for specific permance against the same person with whom you also have sale agreement for the same property and if the agreement of third party is prior to yours and your agreement is also challenged,it could be done that you may file counterclaim for specific performance.
