#### Abstract

The paper presents two document clustering techniques to group Bangla newspaper articles. The first one is based on traditional c-means algorithm, and the later is based on its fuzzy counterpart, i.e., fuzzy c-means algorithm. The key principle for both of those techniques is to measure the frequency of keywords in a particular type of article to calculate the significance of those keywords. The articles are then clustered based on the significance of the keywords. We believe the findings from this research will help to index Bangla newspaper articles. Therefore, the information retrieval will be faster than before. However, one of the challenge is to find the salient features from hundred of features found in documents. Besides, both clustering algorithms work well on lower dimensions. To address this, we use three dimensionality reduction techniques, known as Principle Component Analysis (PCA), Factor Analysis (FA) and Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). We present and analyze the performance of traditional and fuzzy c-means algorithms with different dimensionality reduction techniques.
