No, not a problem, but you should let the employer know out of courtesy. They can withdraw the application without any issue and it will not impact future applications either.

Not sure if it won't have no impact totally on future applications. Earlier may be, yes. But nowadays after MOM has tightened up a lot of things, they will look very closely at even small things.

Thanks for your response. There is a clause in the offer letter that, if I am not able to join with in the joining date I have to pay one month salary.

This clause will be surely be valid, if your EP gets approved.

But since it is pending and you are withdrawing, speak to your employer politely and see what can be done.
