Hi Pankaj, 

You are serializing the object to json string using SerializeObject before binding them to Grid which is the cause of the problem. The Grid will accept the result as a LIST of JSON objects and not the JSON string. So we suggest to convert the dataTable and return them as a list. Refer to the following code example. 

        public ActionResult DataSource(Syncfusion.JavaScript.DataManager dm) 
            using (SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(connectionStr)) 
                //Getting the records based on skip and top value. 
                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("SELECT OrderID,CustomerID,EmployeeID,Freight,OrderDate FROM Orders", cn); 
                SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd); 
                dt = (DataTable)ds.Tables[0]; 
                . . . . . 
            var order = (from DataRow row in dt.Rows 
                         select new Order 
                             OrderID = Convert.ToInt32(row["OrderID"]), 
                             CustomerID = row["CustomerID"].ToString(), 
                             Freight = Convert.ToDecimal(row["Freight"]), 
                             EmployeeID = Convert.ToInt32(row["EmployeeID"]), 
                             OrderDate = Convert.ToDateTime(row["OrderDate"]) 
            return Json(new { result = order, count = count }, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);  

We have prepared a sample that can be downloaded from the following location.
