Just wait you cannot compel other party to file their reply.  If they do not file any counter affidavit cost will be imposed upon them or in the alternative their defence may also be struck up

Dear Gautam,

It is common for the litigants to appear and serve copy of affidavit on the other side and make a statement that the same shall be filed in the registry or in the alternative the request is made to put the same on record of the court whereupon the court fixes the matter for filing of rejoinder if any.  Wait for the outcome on the next date.  Keep your options open.

Best regards

after filing writ the court will grant some time to other party and the other party will take time to file and even on the listed date if he does not file do not worry court will give another date and will see for two or three occassions and finally if they do not file your lawyer has to stress for hearing without the other party filling the court will nt take up hearing and will impose cost and you do not worry this situation is for every case
