In this paper, we describe a system for the automatic recognition of isolated handwritten Devanagari , characters obtained by linearizing consonant conjuncts. Owing to the large number of characters and resulting demands on data acquisition, we use structural reconnition techniques to reduce some characters to others. The residual characters are then classiJied using the subspace method. Finally the results of structural recognition and feature-based matching are mapped to give final output. The proposed system is evaluated for the writer dependent scenario.
