Adjusting last month rent in security deposit

I have made rental agreement without stamp for pg room, on which it is mentioned  1 month prior notice period after lock in but there is no point mentioned which says you cannot ask to adjust last month rent as deposit. I have asked landlord to adjust that but he is refusing too. What too do ?

Also I have informed him of vacation 2 months prior, when I asked earlier to him about security deposit he told to give cheque at that time but I don't want to rely on that. Either he refund the money on spot or adjust that in last month rent and I will stay one more month. Is there anything wrong with this ? Also, in case he refuses to pay deposit on spot and also refuses to adjust last month rent with security deposit and froce me to leave pg what should I do ?

This is a matter to be decided earlier by each other talking about it or you don't pay him the last month rent and ask him adjust from the advance amount.

Thanks for the reply sir, earlier we have discussed this but he is currently refusing that, in worst  scenario can he force me to leave without giving me deposit refund, if so what should I do ?

Thanks for your help!!

It is better to settle the issue amicably.

The rent agreement is unstamped hence cannot be considered to be an agreement.
