How to pass json data from controller to view

 Partial view

var dataa;
    $.ajax({
        url: ServerUrl + '/Dashboard/GetData',
        type: 'POST',
        cache: false,
        dataType: 'text',
        async: true,
        error: function (xhr) {
            //alert('Error: ' + xhr.statusText);
        },
        success: function (result) {
            debugger;
            dataa = result;
            var chart = c3.generate({
                data: {
                    type: 'bar',
                    json: [
                        dataa
                    ],
                    keys: {
                        x: 'indicator',
                        value: ['total']
                    }
                },
                axis: {
                    x: {
                        type: 'category'
                    }
                },
                bar: {
                    width: {
                        ratio: 0.5
                    }
                }
            });
        }
    });

Controller Json code 

public string GetData()
{
return "{ 'indicator': 'A', 'total': 10 },{ 'indicator': 'B', 'total': 20 },{ 'indicator': 'C', 'total': 30 }";

You are not returning JSON from method GetData. Do this way to return JSON

public JsonResult
GetData()
        {
            var data = new[] {
          new { indicator= 'X', total = 100 },
          new { indicator= 'Y', total = 200 },
          new { indicator= 'Z', total = 300 }
       };
 
            return Json(data, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
        }

  Ajax calling like this

$.ajax({
          cache: false,
          type: 'GET',
          url: URL,
          dataType: 'json',
          success: function (result) {
              console.log(result);
          },
          error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {
              alert('Failed to retrieve data.');
          }
      });

 Hope this helps you..
