    $.ajax({
        type: "GET",
        url: "/CreateApplicationFromSearch/CreateApplicationFromSearch",
        contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
        async: false,
        data: { "Applicant_id": ApplicantId, "Application_id": ApplicationId, "OfficeHolder_id": OfficeHolderId, "AccountDetail_Id": AccountDetailId, "contact_person_id": ContactPersonId },

The jQuery ajax method doesn't accept an option called "asc". Did you mean "cache" instead?

Sorry i have tried async: false, when you need that ajax request to be completed before the browser passes to other code

You should avoid using the async flag, since it causes the browser to hang whilst the request is being processed.

Try using cache:false to see if the response is being cached.

Hi Thanks (cache:false) did work

1 solution

As discussed in the comments, it's a caching issue. Adding cache:false to the AJAX call will work around the problem.
JavaScript
$.ajax({
    type: "GET",
    url: "/CreateApplicationFromSearch/CreateApplicationFromSearch",
    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
    cache: false, // <-- Prevent the request from being fulfilled from the cache
    ...

jQuery.ajax() | jQuery API Documentation[^]

Other options would include using a custom attribute on the action to disable browser caching:
c# - Prevent Caching in ASP.NET MVC for specific actions using an attribute - Stack Overflow[^]
C#
[AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Class | AttributeTargets.Method)]
public sealed class NoCacheAttribute : ActionFilterAttribute
{
    public override void OnResultExecuting(ResultExecutingContext filterContext)
    {
        filterContext.HttpContext.Response.Cache.SetExpires(DateTime.UtcNow.AddDays(-1));
        filterContext.HttpContext.Response.Cache.SetValidUntilExpires(false);
        filterContext.HttpContext.Response.Cache.SetRevalidation(HttpCacheRevalidation.AllCaches);
        filterContext.HttpContext.Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);
        filterContext.HttpContext.Response.Cache.SetNoStore();

        base.OnResultExecuting(filterContext);
    }
}

...

[HttpGet]
[NoCache]
[AllowAnonymous]
public ActionResult CreateApplicationFromSearch(...)

Or changing the action to use a POST request, which will never be cached.
C#
[HttpPost]
[AllowAnonymous]
public ActionResult CreateApplicationFromSearch(...)
JavaScript
$.ajax({
    type: "POST",
    url: "/CreateApplicationFromSearch/CreateApplicationFromSearch",
    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
    ...

Some HTTP methods MUST cause a cache to invalidate an entity. ... These methods are:
  • PUT
  • DELETE
  • POST
