Now-a-days, all important paper documents flow within the transacting channels of real time working organisations are bound to perform document scans for their long term usage and gaining clarity during their frequent fetches. This paper discusses challenging issues undertaken in document image binarization. Upon resolving such binarization issues that are caused during printing, digitization and transmission process, image quality can be improved that helps in feature analysis.
