    I don't think you need a different client – you just need to configure PuTTY properly (which would rather be a question for SU).

    @RahulBasu what causes this is usually the TERM variable not or wrongly set. AFAIK there are ways to configure the default in PuTTY (which usually is set to xterm) – and that also applies to the encoding. Again, this "how to" part is a better fit for SU (so please, move the "how to do this with PuTTY" to SU and link to it from your question here. It's of course fine keeping the question for alternatives open here, but the how-to stuff should go there).
