As the company has provided you with the joining letter and ask for a notice pay recovery , anyways you are not eligible for getting your pay, but you are eligible for your Provident fund settlement in case if u were getting covered under PF. Else, nothing really seems due from the employer.
This decision is completely relying on the employer whether he is wishing to pay or not. The settlement letter will clarify you with more information, kindly cross-check the same from a knowledgeable person who can guide and make you explain its content well.
If there is a notice period criteria than for sure company is having a right to recover from your salary and you remain with no right to ask for it.

Forgot to mention few things.
1. Joining letter was given after last working day in Company (joined date 21.10.2013, resigned on 18.11.2014, last worked on 24.11.2014, joining letter received on 29.11.2014).
2. While joining they didnt mention that i have to serve 1 month notice period before leaving company.
3. In f & f letter they mentioned 1 month salary deducted as notice pay but in joining letter they have mentioned 2 things
a) Employee has to serve 1 month notice period before leaving
b) In case of failure ,company will deduct notice pay amount from his salary( it includes BASIC+HRA ONLY)
They have deducted Rs 12569/- whole month salary instead of 9000 [ basic (7500)+HRA(1500) ].
