1. Introduction
The Nörlund summability (N, p_{n}) on Jacobi series has been studied by a number of researchers like Gupta ^{[4]}, Choudhary ^{[3]}, Thorpe ^{[16]}, Pandey and Beohar ^{[10]}, Prasad and Saxena ^{[11]}, Beohar and Sharma ^{[1]}, Pandey ^{[9]}, Tripathi et al. ^{[18]} and Chandra ^{[14]}. After quite a good amount of work in the ordinary Nörlund summability of Jacobi series at the point x =1, Khare and Tripathi ^{[5]} discussed the generalized Nörlund summability (N, p, q) of Jacobi series. The (N, p, q) summability reduces to the (N, p_{n}) summability for q_{n} = 1. The Cesàro Summability of Jacobi series has been studied by Szili &Weisz ^{[15]}. The Cesàro Summability, Nörlund Summability, generalized Nörlund Summability are special cases of The matrix Summability method. In this paper a more general result than those Gupta ^{[4]}, Choudhary ^{[3]}, Khare and Tripathi ^{[5]} has been obtained so that their results come out as particular cases.

3. Main Theorem
The purpose of this paper is to establish a theorem under a very general condition so that it generalizes all the known results for Nörlund summability (N,p_{n}) of Jacobi series in this direction. In fact, we prove the following:
Theorem: Let T = (a_{n,k}) be an infinite lower triangular regular matrix such that the element (a_{n,k}) is positive, monotonic increasing in k for 0 ≤ k ≤ n, and

7. Conclusion
Cesàro, Nörlund, generalized Nörlund Summability methods are the particular cases of matrix Summablity method. In this paper matrix Summability method taken with a condition (3.1) on the Jacobi series (2.1) so that series (2.1) is summable at x=1 to sum A. The result of Gupta ^{[4]}, Chaudhary ^{[3]} and Khare and Tripathi ^{[5]} are particular cases of my result.
