Hello Sharath,

The question was answered in a private support thread, but I will also paste the answer here, so the community can benefit also:

For the time being, we can offer the following supported features and techniques:

- frozen columns can work together with column templates with no issues
http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid#configuration-columns.template

- frozen columns and row template are unfortunately mutually exclusive - this is mentioned in the following documentation section:
http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/data-management/grid/appearance#locked-columns

- it is possible to use a custom edit form with custom buttons outside the Grid - this is demonstrated at:
http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/data-management/grid/how-to/Editing/grid-external-form-editing

- using a custom edit form inside the Grid is not supported, but you can use the built-in edit form and add a new row as soon as the previously added/edited one is saved and dataBound is fired.

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid#events-dataBound

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid#methods-addRow

- the Grid's built-in inline and popup editing mechanism can add only one row at a time. It is possible to add multiple rows to the Grid via the same form on the page, if you do this programmatically via the Grid dataSource API:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid#fields-dataSource

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/data/datasource#methods-add

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/data/datasource#methods-insert
