You can follow the suggestions in the Accessing Controls in RadGrid to get a reference to each control in the RadGrid cells.
To be able to distinguish the desired Template column on the server I would recommend you set a UniqueName for the column. Additionally, in order to reach the anchor as an object on the server-side you need to set its runat attribute to "server", and also set it an id:
<telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="Total" UniqueName="Total">
<a runat="server" id="templateAnchor" href='.....</a>
Then you can reach the anchor on the server, for instance in the ItemDataBound event of the RadGrid, and disable it in the desired way - Disable a HTML <a> link/anchor tag:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
var item = e.Item as GridDataItem;
var cell = item["Total"];
var anchor = cell.FindControl("templateAnchor") as System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlAnchor;
