Is the xml transferred via webservices zipped so that minimum bytes of data is transferred over the network. If not how can we achieve it?

Thanks,

That depends on the underlying transport layer (probably HTTP) and not the webservice layer. What you are probably looking for is HTTP compression, specifically the Accept-encoding and content-encoding request and response headers respectively. How these are set and accepted is dependent on the client and server you are using.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_compression for an longer explanation.
