Answer Accepted

ASP.NET MVC Session state is used to temporarily store and retrieve the values for a user when the user navigates to another view in an ASP.NET MVC application. 

The default ASP.NET MVC session timeout value is 20 minutes. If you want to change the session timeout, then you have to add the below code in the application web.config file

<system.web>   
    <sessionState timeout="30"></sessionState>
</system.web>
