Handwritten signature recognition plays significant role in automatic document verification system in particularly bank cheque authorization. The proposed method focuses on A novel technique for offline signature recognition approach for bank cheque based on zonal features and regional features. These combined features are used to find genuinety of signature using Euclidean distance as a metric. Extensive experiments are carried out to exhibit the success of the recommended approach.
