1. Default in payment of rent is a legal ground for the eviction of the tenant.

2. You can issue a lawyer's notice to her to pay the rent and vacate the premises. If she does not honour the notice then you may file a case for her eviction and recovery of rent in the court which can order her eviction as well as payment of the rent.

It may take 1-2 years for the case to be decided. Before going to court you can issue a lawyer's notice to her. If better sense prevails on her and she vacates the property you will not be required to go to court.
