As the data mining applications are increasing popularly, large volumes of data streams are generated over the period of time. The main problem in data streams is that it exhibits a high degree of class imbalance and distribution of data changes over time. In this paper, Timely Drift Detection and Minority Resampling Technique (TDDMRT) based on K-nearest neighbor and Jaccard similarity is proposed to handle the class imbalance by finding the current ratio of class labels. The Enhanced Early Drift Detection Method (EEDDM) is proposed for detecting the concept drift and the Minority Resampling Method (KNN-JS) determines whether the current data stream should be regarded as imbalance and it resamples the minority instances in the drifting data stream. The K-Nearest Neighbors technique is used to resample the minority classes and the Jaccard similarity measure is established over the resampled data to generate the synthetic data similar to the original data and it is handled by ensemble classifiers. The proposed ensemble based classification model outperforms the existing over sampling and under sampling techniques with accuracy of 98.52%.
