The Kannada documents segmentation into individual lines, words and characters poses many challenges. The Kannada aksharas have a lot variation in widths and heights because they are formed by combination of glyphs of basic symbols. Moreover an akshara is composed of two or more disconnected components. In this research we have proposed an efficient Kannada document segmentation method using projection profile. The experiments are conducted on several scanned documents with different fonts and character segmentation rate of 99.2% and consonant conjunct segmentation rate of 92.73% on an average are observed
