Hi Yaramareddy,
You can write javascript/jquery for the same need.
Here is the Javascript code for your need :-
 
function allLetter(inputtxt)
  {
   var letters = /^[A-Za-z]+$/;
   if(inputtxt.value.match(letters))
     {
      return true;
     }
   else
     {
     alert("message");
     return false;
     }
  }

It will check only for letters and returns true/false based on the result.
Hope it works for you.. :)

Can't we achieve this through Apex class without jquery/javascript?
