How to escape penalty if form 112 not submitted (b.com with articleship)

During my articleship my principal signed a letter that he will inform ICAI if I undergo any course in future. Later on I applied for the B.com private/correspondent and forgot to submit form 112. 

Now after becoming the CA, ICAI is not alloting the Membership no. and asking for penalty of Rs. 11800.

Can I escape this fine in anyway?
