Signature verification has been one of the major researched areas in the field of computer vision. Many financial and legal organizations use signature verification as access control and authentication. Signature images are not rich in texture; however, they have much vital geometrical information. Through this work, we have proposed a signature verification methodology that is simple yet effective. The technique presented in this paper harnesses the geometrical features of a signature image

Publicly available dataset MCYT, BHSig260 (contains the image of two regional languages Bengali and Hindi) has been used in this paper to test the effectiveness of the proposed method. We have received a lower Equal Error Rate (EER) on MCYT 100 dataset and higher accuracy on the BHSig260 dataset.
