Abstract: Delay Tolerant Network is one of the primarily considerable development of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET).These are a unique group of association of networks which supports infrastructure less MANET and do not require complete path in between source and destination nodes for the purpose of communication. This kind of networks allow sending of numerous copies of a single message which enhances the delivery ratio but significantly it decreases the delay of message transmission, though transmission of numerous copies of the identical message increases the message over head. This paper proposes DTN routing protocol i.e. Epidemic and Spray and Wait on the basis of number of messages delivered when compared to network overhead ratio.
