With the increasing availability of electronic documents and the rapid growth of the World Wide Web, the task of automatic categorization of documents became the key method for organizing the information and knowledge discovery. Proper classification of e-documents, online news, blogs, e-mails and digital libraries need text mining, machine learning and natural language processing techniques to get meaningful knowledge. The aim of this paper is to highlight the important techniques and
