    Hi Vineet,


    The limitation of a file size in Cloud OCR SDK is 30 MB. Please review all the supported input image formats here. For extracting the data from the particular page, you can create a PDF file containing only the page which should be processed (for example, by printing this page to file with some virtual printer software). 


    The zonal recognition in Cloud OCR SDK is possible with the help of the processFields method. The detailed guide on using this method is available here. Please note that the text field should not be longer than 200 characters.
