Image processing and pattern recognition algorithms take more time for execution on a single core processor. Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is more popular now-a-days due to their speed, programmability, low cost and more inbuilt execution cores in it. Most of the researchers started work to use GPUs as a processing unit with a single core computer system to speedup execution of algorithms. The main goal of this research work is to make binarization faster for recognition of a large number of degraded document images on GPU. In this paper, parallel implementation is focused on the well known Niblack
