I want to read a pdf format data in python. As far as I know, there is one way of changing its format from pdf to text, but I want to import the content directly from pdf.

Kindly explain which package in python is best for pdf extraction?

In your case, if you do not want to convert the pdf into text, then you can use the PyPDF2 package, refer to the below code for reference:

#install pyDF2

pip install PyPDF2

# importing all the required modules

import PyPDF2

# creating an object 

file = open('example.pdf', 'rb')

# creating a pdf reader object

fileReader = PyPDF2.PdfFileReader(file)

# print the number of pages in pdf file
