As you are defaulter to make payment of rent for four consecutive months and you have no mind to hold your said tenanted occupation so you are at liberty to surrender the tenancy vacating the said room without any delay to avoid legal procedure so to be taken by the landlord against you. you can approach for capital demand against the surrender of the said tenancy before the landlord.
