Hi, Raj,
While Skuid handles some page-level validation (e.g. making a field required at the page level), Skuid doensn't have an out-of-the-box feature that handles logic that advanced right now. I would suggest one of two options:
  1. Use standard Salesforce validation rule.
  2. Write a custom field renderer with JavaScript that handles the validation. (Here's a bit of info on custom field renderers)
If you want this validation to apply org-wide (not just in a single Skuid page), I would definitely recommend the first approach. It is probably simpler and will ensure the validation will always be run when users are entering data. If you want to handle this logic just in a single page, you will probably have to go the JavaScript approach.

for specific field, where i have to write my custom logic. example: for first name supports only characters not numerics and special characters. for this in field-level, where i have go to write my custom logic means step by step and validation script code

As emily said above, there is nowhere in skuid that you can write a validation rule to apply to a field every time you use the field. You can write a javascript snippet and us it as a custom field renderer, but you will have to manually apply the custom renderer every time you use the field.

Here's the documentation on field renderers:

And the community has lots of examples.
