A karaka based &i)pro,'~cl'~ for' t),xYsng of [nc/ian languages is described. I~ has been used for, building a parseL' of ttindi for a prototype Machine Translation system. A lex.[ca].[sod gt'&mlnaF formalism has been developed that a].lovas constraints to be specified between 'demand' ~and 'source' ~;or'ds (e.g. , between verb and its karaka roles). The parser has two important novel features: (.[) It has a local word grouping phase in uhich wot"d gr'oups are formed using 'local' in- for-marion onl~ ~. They are formed based on finite state machine specifications thu~ resulting in a fas~t grouper. (ii) The parser. is a general constraint :~o]ver. It first transforms the con- str'aints to ~n integer programming pr.ob]em and then solves it.
