SC person 10 years back sold the land to a General Caste. so at that time he should have been taken permission from the Revenue authorities. However check with the revenue authorities and obtain EC from Registrar office or online through E-seva centres.

There is no such classification as SC or ST Land. Generally, there cannot be any restrictions on the transfer of private property. It is only respective States have enacted law restricting transfer of private lands in Notified Localities. Please verify.
Please note that Land and Land Revenue is a State subject and hence local laws and regulations apply.
