This paper presents results of various experiments carried out to improve text retrieval of gujarati text documents. Text retrieval involves searching and ranking of text documents for a given set of query terms. We have tested various retrieval models that uses bag-of-words approach. Bag-of-words approach is a traditional approach that is being used till date where the text document is represented as collection of words. Measures like frequency count, inverse document frequency etc. are used

Gujarati is a morphologically rich language, we have compared techniques like stop word removal, stemming and frequent case generation against baseline to measure the improvements in information retrieval tasks. Most of the techniques are language dependent and requires development of language specific tools. We used plain unprocessed word index as the baseline, we have seen significant improvements in comparison of MAP values after applying different indexing techniques when compared to the baseline.
