Rural agriculture land is not capital asset. Therefore sale of such land is not taxable. If the land is hold as stock in trade and the transaction of purchase and sale of such land is done regularly and it is in the course of business, it is business income, otherwise not. Regularly and purpose of the transaction is deciding factor not the volume of transaction.

It depends on the motive of the person. If he purchase with the intention to sell for profit and not for holding as an asset then it will be in the nature of business and the land will be treated as stock in trade. The difference will be profit from business. Otherwise Capital gain provisions applicable and refer the Capital asset definition.
