Please suggest me the appropriate character set

You would at least need to check and possibly change the codeset in the Informix configuration. Have a look at Help with multibyte locales[^]

Tnx for the reply, I changed client locale to en_US.UTF8 in the system DSN(controlpanel-->AdministrativeTools-->Data Sources(odbc)). But it is not being reflected here : select * from sysmaster:informix.sysdbslocale
Kindly let me know how to change client locale value.

Client locale is one thing but have you checked the server side locale that Informix uses?

Please have a look at IBM® Informix® Client Software Development Kit, Version 4.10 / Set a GLS locale[^]
