Document Image processing and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) have been a frontline research area in the field of human-machine interface for the last few decades. Recognition of Indian language characters has been a topic of interest for quite some time. The earlier contributions were reported in [1] and [2]. A more recent work is reported in [3] and [9]. The need for efficient and robust algorithms and systems for recognition is being felt in India, especially in the post and telegraph department where OCR can assist the staff in sorting mail. Character recognition can also form a part in applications like intelligent scanning machines, text to speech converters, and automatic language-to-language translators.
