This paper describes automatic form filling system for collecting census data based on online handwritten character recognition for Tamil. The aim is to facilitate easy digitization of Indian language ink‐data gathered from field. The application interface is designed in such a way that the same application can be adopted for other Indian languages. It also describes the common interface framework required to facilitate this multiple language recognition engines. For Tamil or any other Indian scripts; inputting isolated symbols is not practical, hence the application uses non‐isolated character recognition. The application incorporates simplified method of form design, layout analysis, engine error correction; engine level limited vocabulary based post‐processor, validations etc. The performance evaluation of this application is also carried out against the traditional methods and promising results are obtained. The same system can be easily adopted for other types of forms required to be filled in Tamil e.g forms used by Government institutions, Banks etc.
