Any column can be enabled/disabled for editing within the edit event handler of the Kendo UI Grid (when the inline "Edit" button is clicked on a specific row). Once the event is fired, you could set the attribute "disabled" with the jQuery method attr() to specified columns.

For example, the code snippet below demonstrates how to disable the column "Ship Name" in edit mode:

  .Columns(columns =>
     columns.Bound(p => p.ShipName);
     columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); command.Destroy(); })
   .Events(ev => ev.Edit("onEdit"))
   .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.InLine))

      function onEdit(e) {
          var shipNameOption = e.sender.editable.options.model.ShipName;
          var shipNameInput = $('[data-role="editable"] input#ShipName');
          if (shipNameOption) {
              shipNameInput.attr('disabled', 'disabled');
          } else {

Would you please give a try of this example and let me know if it applies to your case?
