Abstract: In modern word, popularity of the internet is growing day by day so, volume of data is growing exponentially on the web and a variety of information services increased therefore, to obtain any desired information became a challenging task. Text summarization may be a feasible and powerful to handle such type of problems. Even text summarization can help to the government for "Good Governance". In fact, e-governance is going to be a new approach of any government for Good governance. Summarized information also helps in many ways like in emergency decision support, policymaking, and government routine for government as well as for civil servants. For example Indian government recently launched a web portal www.mygov.in for all people, to give their contribution/views for policy making (like for Digital India, Green India, Skill development etc), to share views about different issues like the recent United Nations declared 21st June at ‘International Day of Yoga’. Such type of initiative can help in better policymaking and this is possible only through Text Document Summarization.
