don't buy tools like Telerik, understand MVC/razor and unobtrusive jquery or regular jquery within MVC/razor

kblau,

Many thanks for your response, but you don’t think that the implementation duration will be huge enough without any readymade 'solutions' as shortcut!  

Your objections mainly based on architecture of similar tools? I have to admit that I don’t have resources (staff or time or budget) to support development for more than 4 man months.

Your decision should be based on your team experience with MVC and third party tools (not only commercial but open source ones)
For example another commercial alternative is Infragistics.
My recommended action plan :
- Have a look at the sample pages of the likely components you are planning to utilize and evaluate if you can use them out of the box on both products.
- Make a simple POC solution with above components to get the feeling of what is involved and if your selected product will solve your needs. Both products have 30-day trial.
- Do not underestimate the learning challenge , it is substantial if you are moving from Web forms to MVC and if you add JQUERY AJAX to the mix, it could be quite challenging for your team. Allocate training time if required.
