With the advent of technology and thrust to create machines with human intelligence, the frontiers in machine learning are being stretched incessantly. With the increasing number of digital information in recent scenario, text classification has gained importance in machine learning task which needs to study texts thoroughly to achieve success. It is a task of assigning a random document to its predefined text class. This paper aims at presenting a methodology for developing an automatic system for solving the problem of classifying Bangla text document into their respective text categories. It introduces a hybrid approach (i.e., PART) for classification of Bangla text documents based on ‘term association’ and ‘term aggregation’ as baseline feature extraction methods. Comparison of results with other classification algorithms shows that this approach can elicit better results than the existing methods.
