The problem of Association Rule Mining (ARM) can be solved by using Apriori algorithm consisting of 3-steps -Joining, pruning and verification. Pruning step plays an important role in eliminating weak candidate itemsets. In this paper, a new pruning step is proposed as an alternate to Apriori's pruning step. This alternative is depicted as a filtration step. Five experiments are carried out to claim that proposed pruning method also works as efficient as Apriori's pruning method.
