### 1. Introduction

The concept of Fuzzy sets was initially investigated by Zadeh ^{[13]} as a new way to represent vagueness in everyday life. Subsequently, it was developed by many authors and used in various fields. To use this concept in Topology and Analysis, several researchers have defined Fuzzy metric space in various ways. In this paper we deal with the Fuzzy metric space defined by Kramosil and Michalek ^{[11]} and modified by George and Veeramani ^{[20]}. Recently, Grebiec ^{[1]} has proved fixed point results for Fuzzy metric space. In the sequel, Singh and Chauhan ^{[12]} introduced the concept of compatible mappings of Fuzzy metric space and proved the common fixed point theorem. Jungck et. al. ^{[2]} introduced the concept of compatible maps of type (A) in metric space and proved fixed point theorems. Using the concept of compatible maps of type (A), Jain et. al. ^{[18]} proved a fixed point theorem for six self maps in a fuzzy metric space. Singh et. al. ^{[7, 8]} proved fixed point theorems in a fuzzy metric space. Recently in 2012, Jain et. al. ^{[4, 5]} and Sharma et. al. ^{[6]} proved various fixed point theorems using the concepts of semi-compatible mappings, property (E.A.) and absorbing mappings. The concept of occasionally weakly compatible mappings in metric spaces is introduced by Al-Thagafi and Shahzad ^{[14]} which is most general among all the commutativity concepts. Recently, Khan and Sumitra ^{[15]} extended the notion of occasionally weakly compatible maps to fuzzy metric space.

In this paper, a fixed point theorem for six self maps has been established using the concept of compatible maps of type (A) occasionally weakly compatible mappings, which generalizes the result of Cho ^{[16]}.

For the sake of completeness, we recall some definitions and known results in Fuzzy metric space.

**Step 5. **As , there exists such that .

Putting and in (e), we get

Taking and using (1) and (2), we get

i.e..

Therefore, by using lemma 2.2, we get . Hence . Since is occasionally weakly compatible, therefore, by proposition (2.2), we have

**Step 6. **Putting and in (e), we get

Taking and using (2) and step 5, we get

**Case II. **Suppose is continuous.

Taking , we get

i.e.

Therefore, by using lemma 2.2, we get

Therefore,

As is compatible pair of type , then by proposition (2.2), we have

Also, from step 4, we get .

Further, using steps 5, 6, 7, we get

(d) there exists such that for every and

Then and have a unique common fixed point in .

**Remark 3.2. **In view of remark 3.1, corollary 3.1 is a generalization of the result of Cho ^{[16]} in the sense that condition of compatibility of the pairs of self maps has been restricted to compatibility of type occasionally weakly compatible and only one map of the first pair is needed to be continuous.
