I have sharepoint group with custom permission. I want this group to all access on site like admin except for "site collection feature" & "manage site feature". Is this possible? Which access I have to uncheck from custom permission (initial admin access is granted)

Site collection features can only be managed by site collection administrators and if you are giving that access then you can't control that with permissions. So your question is really: "what permission level can I use to prevent a user from activating/deactivating features?" – Bryan Mathews Apr 17 at 12:22

What you're looking for is called Permission Levels.

Permission Levels allows you to specify on a granular level what a user can and cannot do.

Browse to http://YoursiteUrl/_layouts/user.aspx and click on "Permission Levels". Add a new one and select the permissions you want.

User already said, he has custom permissions on a group, which states he knows what permission level it :-) – Muhammad Raja Feb 25 '14 at 8:18
yes, i am using permission level only. I have permission level "admin" which is duplicate of full control. Let me know which checkbox I have to uncheck so that user can have everything like full control except "site collection feature" and "manage site feature". User with admin access shoul not manupulate both. – Brishal Feb 25 '14 at 12:01
