I had a face to face interview with a company and that company asked me to sign the offer letter for which I asked for some time to think about it but they insisted that I will not be given the offer if I don't sign it. I was confused and signed the offer letter which had a clause that if I don't join I will have to pay a penalty of 3 months salary.

Before the date of joining I told them I will not be joining and now they are asking for the penalty amount.

Is the claim justified? Has there been any judgement where employees had to pay the amount?

Just ignore the demand. Let them file a case. On what ground can they file it? When you have not even joined the company, how can they establish an employee employer relationship? Just signing an offer letter will not create a Master Servant relationship. Therefore, just ignore such mails.
