Document image compression is used for the speedy transmission of the data over the web. This paper deals with effective compression scheme for handwritten gray level documents in Devnagri script. The current OCR technology is not effective for handling the handwritten textual images. The proposed compression scheme is based on the separation of foreground and background of the image. Experiments have been done for the handwritten textual images. These document images are written in Devnagri (Hindi and Marathi). The results of the some modules progress towards achieving the good compression ratio are presented. Compression scheme are available for printed textual images in Indian language. But for handwritten text images very little work is reported. Thus the compression for handwritten text in the context of Indian language is important.
