It becomes the duty of the vendor to sign the necessary forms for transfer of all revenue records in the name of the buyer, he is obliged to do so which can be seen from recital of the sale deed document itself.  
If the builder refuses to sign the forms, you may issue him a legal notice demanding him to sign the same failing which proper legal action may be initiated against him through appropriate court of law, i.e., either through civil court seeking specific reliefs or through consumer court for deficiency of service. 
You may discuss the issue with a local advocate and process the legal action as per his further advise.

The builder is not required to sign katha application form. The katha can be applied on the basis of Occupancy Certificate by the buyer.
