In an automatic text summarization process, a text is given to the computer and the computer returns a shorter less redundant extract of the original text. The proposed method is a sentence extraction based single document text summarization which produces a generic summary for a Malayalam document. Sentences are ranked based on feature scores and Googles PageRank formula. Top k ranked sentences will be included in summary where k depends on the compression ratio between original text and summary. Performance evaluation will be done by comparing the summarization outputs with manual summaries generated by human evaluators.
