With the growing demand for text transmission and storage due to advent of Internet technology, text compression has gained its own momentum. Generally text is coded in ASCII format. Huffman coding or any other run length encoding techniques compresses the plain text. We propose a new method for plain text compression, which is mainly inspired by the concepts of Pitman Shorthand. The coding scheme successfully codes a group of successive 2-3 text characters into a single code. In this paper we have illustrated the implementation of the plain text compression using a new coding scheme, which is based on the concepts of Pitman Shorthand. Further application of Huffman coding on the codes generated is possible and is expected to result in a greater compression
