I have following line of code in my jsp

window.location = "<bean:write name="securityInterceptForm" property="securityInterceptDTO.securityReturn" />";

where property value at runtime = ""

but this tag appends an "amp;" to & so that queryString becomes

amp not in quotes.
Why is it doing so. Can someone please help.

Specify filter="false" in the <bean:write> tag. This will tell struts not to escape sensitive characters.
