In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), due to frequent changes in topology there exist more link breakages which lead to high rate of path failures and route discoveries, which cause an increased routing control overhead. Thus, it is necessary to reduce the overhead of route discovery in the design of routing protocols for MANETs. In a route discovery, broadcasting may be an elementary and effective data dissemination mechanism, wherever a mobile node blindly rebroadcasts the first received route request packets unless it has a route to the destination, and therefore it causes the broadcast storm problem.
