    The requirement is : User can search in SharePoint 2010 custom search page with parameters like Agreement Name , Cost Center etc and get the search results in grid format , with a check box for the user to select multiple search results for further processing. The data source for these results is Oracle database , we will be using BCS (external list) to integrate the data. While searching on parameters like cost center , their data source is again oracle , which should give the user functionality to search & select from different cost centers by opening another page for cost center search. Can this be achieved using Telerik SPGrid Webpart or any other web part ?

    Please find attached image file for reference.

    Any thoughts or ideas !!!

    The Telerik SPRadGridWebPart supports databinding to external lists and business connectivity services so it should be able to display the results from the search. The databinding can be configured through the designer of the web part by picking the external list option and specifying your service. If you need additional customization on the user interface or more control over the databinding of the grid you can use a standard RadGrid control instead which allows more options for customizations depending on your specific scenario.
    More information on external list databinding in the SPRadGridWebPart can be found in this demo:

    I hope this helps.
