If the tenant has not paid the rent then he is not entitled to continue as a tenant. File a case for eviction your tenant in the local court.

Is there any agreement as to duration of lease ? if there is no agreement you can terminate the lease by giving 15 days notice and seek possession thereof. If the tenant is not paying rent the lease can be forfeited but during the possessory suit the court can direct the tenant  to pay the arrears of rent and lease restored.  You can also file suit for recovery of rent and deposit as per terms of the agreement.
