Brokerage for stock options net off trades on expiry day

I observed that 0.1 % brokerage is charged even for a net off position for stock options .
This does not look fair as there is NO exchange transactions made from Zerodha .

In my case i have one long call of SBIN at 245 and a short call at 250 .
settlement price at end of expiry day is 253 . However brokerage charged is 13xx as per 0.1& mentioned above .

Any suggestions on how to avoid this ?
