I had taken a 3 year car lease on behalf of my companys name from ALD car leasing company who has ties with my company. I get tax benefits from car lease (irrelevant to my question). After 1 n half year of car lease during, i got Laid off with severance package because of automation & am serving 3 month notice period till Feb 16 2018. I havent been able to secure another job & the current IT market is not in my favour. I do not intend to work in IT anymore as im looking to establish myself in business.

Is there a work around this predicament wherein i can ?

Legally you may not have a recourse in the given circumstances.


However it would be good to have a word with the car dealer and the company. Requesting them for a monthly payment may help. Car dealer may agree on payment on an EMI basis. Wish you all the best.
