Dear Sir,

For the purpose of definition of Agriculture land under income tax terms mentioned in sales deed is irrelevant. only it should suffice definition as per income tax act. So if it fulfills all conditions of the Income Tax Definition sale of said land shall be treated as agriculture land.

Dear Sir,

Description in the sale deed is of not much important for the purpose of income tax. 

If the land qualifies for rural agriculture land as per the definition under income tax act, you don't need to worry. It's not a capital asset and does not liable for capital gain tax.

Please feel free to call/revert in case of any doubts

The description will be checked at the time of sale and not the nature at the time of purchase.

Hello Sir,

While registration if they registered it as residential why didn't you object then stating it is agricultural land. As the AO officer will go by documentary evidences which show that the land was residential and not agricultural.
