In this paper, we propose the method of segmenta-tion only for touching characters for Handwritten Marathi Text that is the Devanagari script. There may be some touch-ing characters in the word. Sometimes, interline space and noise makes line segmentation a difficult task. The main pur-pose of this paper is to provide the new segmentation technique based on joint point algorithm. Foreground and background information are used here for accurate segmentation. Our method can take care of this situation accurately. Segmentation is one of the important step of character recognition systems. . It is an important step because inaccurately segmented text lines will cause errors in the recognition stage.
