Abstract.Useful inaccuracy measures and mean codeword lengths are well known in the literature of information theorey. In this communication, a new generalized `useful' inaccuracy of order $\alpha $ and type $\beta $ has been proposed and coding theorem has been established by considering the said measure and a generalized average `useful' codeword length. Our motivation for studying this is that it generalizes some results which already existing in the literature.
