This paper provides an efficient method for delivering data chunks from source to destination in ad hoc network using fountain code. There is a probability of loosing data packets very often. Not only that, in a ubiquitous environment where some or all the nodes are in constant move, the authors need to make an ad-hoc network which can connect to each other whenever required. Keeping the same in context the concept of rateless erasure codes in ad hoc network has been introduced. There is a challenge of minimizing the communication time and improving efficiency in data transferring between communicating nodes, for that proposed method has been used.
