Kerridge introduced a measure known as inaccuracy for complete probability distributions which is the generalisation of Shannon's entropy. In this paper we study a grouping property of the inaccuracy. Also we have established a coding theorem for personal codes by considering inaccuracy of order a and generalised mean length of order t under the condition Σi=1 N piqi -1 Dtni ≤ 1.
