rent token money refundable in Pune if tenant says no without rent agreement

I have 2bhk apartment in Pune for rent. 4 days back a party booked the apartment by giving 10k token money. Then deposited entire rent and deposit. I handed over the keys. No rent agreement made till now. Today they say they don't want to take the apartment and want all the money back. I have lost other tenants because of them. Can I keep the token money to compensate? Is it legally possible to keep one month rent for the losses?

Unless there is an agreement in contrary, token money can be forfeited by you.

For further queries, you can contact me.
