In Such case Section 195 will attract and irrespective of the value of Land Buyer is liable to deduct TDS. And Yes, Buyer is also need a TAN and must deduct TDS at the time of payment of sale consideration. If the buyer does not have a TAN, he must get it from the Income Tax Department as it is a necessary condition to deduct Tax especially in cases where the seller is a Non Resident.

If you are making payment for anything to NRI you have to see the TDS compliances.
Further as per Section 195 TDS should be deducted for any payment.
** It is responsibility of Buyer to Deduct TDS on Payment to NRI**
Further If NRI does not want to get the TDS deducted the you can advise him to get NO DEDUCTION CERTIFICATE/LOWER DEDUCTION CERTIFICATE from Income Tax Department.
Hence It can be said that the TDS would be applicable on Payment made for Land purchased from NRI.
