[Required(ErrorMessage = "Enter Date")]
[DisplayName("Payment Date")]
[DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:dd/mm/yyyy}")]
public DateTime Date { get; set; }


@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Date,new { @class = "k-input datepickerbootstrap", @required = "required", @id = "Date", @name = "Date" })


            autoclose: true,
            format: 'dd-mm-yyyy',

Most probably you are using en-US culture which uses MM/dd/yyyy date format. You need to change the server culture to one that uses dd/MM/yyyy format (for example en-GB)

You may do it through web config:

        <globalization uiCulture="en-GB" culture="en-GB" />


As Stephen pointed out in his comment the format that is used in datepicker configuration has to match the format that is defined by server culture so if we take en-GB culture as an example since it's date format is dd/MM/yyyy, datepicker format has to be the same:

            autoclose: true,
            format: 'dd/mm/yyyy',
