Data cleansing or data scrubbing is the process of finding and correcting the correct and accurate data from a set of records or database .The process of data cleansing includes data auditing, workflow specification, workflow execution, post-processing and controlling.
The compilation of a huge database will have the same record entered more than once thereby the same information being repeated and creating duplicates. Multiple entries of these data create duplicates. With the help of an error correction technique, an error is corrected thereby removing inaccurate and invalid entries. Every block of data received is checked and if the check fails the data is re-transmitted repeatedly for cleansing, until the data has no or less errors.
