Accept notice, and further check whether seller had published noc I one local and one English newspaper. If it was published then the relative of seller's plaint is not maintainable in court.
It is always advisable to accept notice served on you by court. You have put your version in the court after going through the version of the other side i.e. relatives who have filed the case and obtain stay order. You must contact local Legal Advisor to help you in the matter to safe guard your interest.

There is no harm in accepting the notice from the court. You anyways have to get involved in the matter for your own benefit, because if the relative of the seller affirms in court that the title is defective thereby, getting a stay order from the court. In such a situation receiving the court’s notice and appearing before the court would do no harm and in turn help you. Also, while appearing before the court, a reply to the averments made by the relative needs to be submitted alongwith all the supporting documents in relation to the agricultural land you purchased. The said documents will consist of your sale deed + mutation certificate + etc. This reply will assert your true claim over the Clear title that you possess.
An application for the vacation of stay can also be presented. If not from the same court then from the Hon’ble High Court – as per the mandate of article 226(3) of the Constitution of India. It seeks to give an opportunity to the party – of being heard as a part of fair trial and also allow him/her to make an application for vacation of the said order.
