what terminal or terminal emulator are you using? if you're using emulator, you can use the input method of client OS to input non-ascii characters. – LiuYan 刘研 Jul 5 '13 at 14:57
I'm using 'putty' version 0.58 – Pawan Mude Jul 5 '13 at 15:27
So you're connecting from a Windows machine via putty to a remote CentOS system? Could you give these details in your question please? – terdon Jul 5 '13 at 16:22

In Putty set your enconding here:

Settings > Window > Translation > Remote character set > UTF-8

And in vi:

:set encoding=utf-8
