In your case, there would be no tax liability on your father with regards to gift given to you.
According to Income Tax Act of India, if both doner & donee of gift are relatives then it is exempt in the hands of both of them.

But in your case, Since you are NRI, for checking your tax liability, you must refer to the law of the country in which you are residing with regards to provisions of Gift amount received by you.

In the present case you can receive gift from your parents on which there will not be any tax. But need to check the conditions to be called land as rural land. Pl check that to ascertain tax liability of your father.
