This work focusses on data dissemination in delay tolerant mobile networks. The important roles in our daily life are played by Mobile wireless devices, e.g., Such devices are often used by users for being in touch with the friends like to take pictures andshare with friends and for bank transactions via opportunistic peer-to-peer links. Store and forward feature is adopted in Delay Tolerant Network since the links are intermittent in nature. Selfish nodes with rational behaviour is considered due to limited resources i.e, Communication bandwidth and battery consumption and are not willing to forward data items to other devices. This can be overcome by adopting effective data dissemination schemes to encourage nodes that can collaboratively share data.In this paper, Multi-Receiver Incentive-Based Dissemination (MuRIS) is proposed in which the nodes are allowed to deliver information cooperatively to another via chosen delivery paths in which few transmissions are utilized.A scheme known as credit-based incentive is proposed to promote nodal collaboration considering the selfish nodes with rational behaviour.
