    Edit to the Question: 

    Please see above screenshots attached.
    My objective is to use server side pagination and grouping (groupable == false) , groupable column is being retrieved from DB.
    I've achieved server side pagination and its working properly but when I try to implement grouping things get start twisting.
    Firstly there was pagination error coming i.e first page renders with correct data and total count but from second and onwards data is not showing because it does not convert into DataSourceResult object.

     public IActionResult GetProcessResults([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request)


        var data = test.ToDataSourceResult(request);// test is datatabe having dynamic columns
                var result = new DataSourceResult()
                    AggregateResults = data.AggregateResults,
                    Data = dt.AsEnumerable(),
                    Total = dt.Rows.Count,

    Hello Asad,

    Thank you for the provided screenshots.

    Kendo offers a .ToDataSourceResult() extension that accepts IQueryable as an argument.

    public ActionResult Read([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request)
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        return Json(dt.ToDataSourceResult(request));

    Essentially what this would do is get the configurations applied to the DataSource such as PageSize, Groups, Filters and so on, and apply them to the DataTable View. It works in a similar way as to when you are using an IEnumerable for the data.

    Let me know in case further assistance is required.
