Energy levels among the lowest 40 fine-structure levels in Be-like Mg IX are calculated using grasp2K code. The wavelengths, oscillator strengths, radiative rates and lifetimes for all possible K$\alpha$ transitions have been calculated using the multiconfiguration Dirac–Fock method. The accuracy of the results is determined through extensive comparisons with the existing laboratory measurements and theoretical results. The present data can be used reliably for many purposes, such as the line identification of the observed spectra, and modelling and diagnostics of magnesium plasma.
