The fast growing technology in wireless communication has led to the development of Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) application in every aspect of human life that ranges from class room coaching to defense, military, disaster hit areas, personal area networking, etc. MANET is a self-configuring network formed with mobile nodes with wireless connectivity and does not have any centralized administration. So, the MANET does not have a static topology. Topology changes dynamically i.e. some new mobile nodes may join the network and some other mobile nodes may leave the network. So keeping track of the path to deliver the message is a very crucial task in MANET.
