Hi Sachin, 

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products. 

We have analyzed your reported scenario and tested by exporting the grid with numeric columns to excel with GroupingGridExcelConverterControl and GridGroupingExcelConverterControl. Unfortunately we could not able to reproduce the reported scenario at our end. The numeric columns values are exported as Number type in excel sheet. Could you please provide the following details,
