You can very well look for the substituted service of summon by filing an application under order V rule 20 requesting court to permit you to serve the summons through local newspaper.
You can advise your advocate to initiate process expeditiously.

1) you can file for divorce on grounds of mental cruelty and desertion 

2) refusal to stay with husband amounts to mental cruelty

3) you can remarry only after divorce

You are free to file for divorce. If she does not take the summons then the court can proceed ex parte against her. Unless you obtain divorce from the court you cannot remarry.

Hi
You should certainly file for Divorce immediately,get another advocate who can take steps to send her summons.
Once case is filed court bailiff will take summons or it can be send by registered post.
After receiving summons or it returns you can ask for an exparti decree depending on the circumstances.
If one spouse withdraw from marriage other spouse has aright to move on.
It is really sad and many years wasted.

Immediately file divorce and fight the case on merit and get divorce based on cruelty and desertion.
If nobody take summon then published the summon in newspaper after permission of court.
