Line segmentation is one of the important steps of OCR system. In this paper we have proposed a robust method for segmentation of individual text lines of Odia printed documents. Both foreground and background information are used for accurate line segmentation. We have tested our method on documents of Odia scripts as well as some multi-script documents and obtained encouraging result. This technique is based on the intensity of pixel values.
