  • Thanks Buthfa 

    However in my case I found a different root cause  

    Actually I was using “Dot Connect for Oracle” data driver to connection oracle that uses default settingUnicode=False  http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/universal/docs/UseOraDirect.html  .  I am surprise why, Even though it is industry standard?

    After applying Unicode=true attribute in collection string defined in web.config , it works perfectly fine

    <add name="MyEntities" connectionString="…………provider=Devart.Data.Oracle;provider connection string=&quot;User Id=***;Password=***;Unicode=true;Server=***;Direct=True;Sid=***;Port=***;Persist Security Info=True&quot;" providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" />
