Hi Chandan, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 
Query:  I want to know that how to set the value in Autocomplete Multicolumn in ASP.net MVC5  
You can set the value for Autocomplete using the Value property. When multi-column is enabled, the text box value will depend on StringFormat; so, you need to set the value property based on your StringFormat property.  
For example, in the below sample, we have set the StringFormat as “{0} ({3}) ({1})" and the Value property is set based on the corresponding column index as like follows “10401 (Albuquerque) (1)”. 
@Html.EJ().Autocomplete("selectCar").Width("100%").WatermarkText("Select an order") 
   .Value("10401 (Albuquerque) (1)").Datasource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.datasource) 
   .HighlightSearch(true).ShowPopupButton(true).MultiColumnSettings(obj =>       obj.Enable(true).Columns(obj1 => 
        }).StringFormat("{0} ({3}) ({1})")) 
For your reference, we have prepared a simple ASP.NET MVC5 sample for Autocomplete multicolumn support. You can get the sample from,
