Hi Pratik,
Blender has a 'decimate' modifier [0] which can use this method,
The main logic for edge collapsing is here [1].

If your interested, there is room for improvements in our implementation:
- ngon support (currently ignored).
- include custom-data in the 'error' value (avoid errors in UV's, vertex color).
- improved boundary handling (currently weights boundary edges higher).
