Your resignation accepted or not is not clarify by you. If resignation accepted then not necessary to fulfill the condition for notice period. You may be in worse position to possibly one month's salary if you are in Permenant employee of the organization and the condition noted in the appointment latter otherwise your responsibility is null.

Ideally you will have to pay the amount equivalent to one month's salary, since you have resigned without serving the notice period, which is as per your employment agreement and you are bound by it.
