India’s big data generation is increasing exponentially and is expected to reach 3 Zebibytes per
year (1 Zebibyte = 10247 bytes, about trillion Gigabytes) by 2020, driven by continued growth of internet usage,
social networks, proliferation of smart phones, as well as the digital initiatives and structural reforms
undertaken by the Indian government. At the same time, incidents of data crimes such as data hacks, data leaks,
data tampering, identity thefts are on the rise, which are costing Indian organizations and consumers more

High value data like land registry, educational documents, employment, transaction and health
records etc. are required by individuals and organizations as part of their routine activities.
However, current mechanism of data exchange is mostly manual, paper based, slow and fraught
with risks of tampering, forgery and thefts.
Governments worldwide are realizing the need to add stringent data regulations to safeguard

Recognizing the need and opportunity to enable with technology the enforcement of data
protection regulations, Zebi has created a Blockchain driven, unique and holistic solution to make
