Privacy, Anonymity, pseudonymity are the debatable terms which on one angle restrict the rights but on other angle open doors for malacious activity.This paper propses design for a pseudonymised communication which is optimal solution for the privacy issues, where the real identity is hidden from the outside world by using blind signature in a different way of group commmunication.The protocol is deployed and analysed in extreme environment of Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN), which is overlay on the top of traditional Internet which provides end to end connectivity and charactarised with long delay and disruption. A telemedicine application of rural area network is explored to provide source anonymity.The protocol is finally analysed using Dolev Yao model with two different cases and it preserves the orignal identity of the node.
