The number of patent documents being filed every year is increasing at a rapid rate which demands for advanced and revolutionized tools to assist in patent mining activities such as Analysis, Detecting Infringements, Classification, etc. Among these activities, one of the prominent one is Classification. It aids flexible management and easy maintenance. Also favors fast and convenient searching. This paper makes an effort of exploration and implementation of certain classification algorithms and provides statistics of results on comparison.
