The proposed system detects text using connect component labelling and a set of selection/ rejection criteria which helps to retain the text region alone. The detected text region is then inpainted using fast marching algorithm which uses the pixel information that is present in the non-text region of the image for inpainting the detected text region. This work is done in two steps. The first step detects the text region from the image without the user manually marking it and in the second step
