The availability of tremendous amount of information has necessitated the need for retrieving useful information from a huge collection. Information retrieval systems assist the user to retrieve relevant information from huge corpus depending on user need specified in the form of query.

In this paper, we discuss various information retrieval models and methods for evaluating a model. Also we discuss an application where an IR model can provide a solution.
