    Hello Suraj,

    You can easily use the RadGrid's client-side API to achieve the functionality you desire. Here is an example of how you might create a JavaScript method that would take a column name and return that column's index:

    function getColumnIndexByUniqueName(columnName) { 
        var masterTableView = $find('<%= RadGrid1.ClientID %>').get_masterTableView(); 
        var column = masterTableView.getColumnByUniqueName(columnName); 
        var element = column.get_element(); 
        return element.cellIndex; 

    I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.
