MANET applications have great benefits from multicast and apply in the fields where multicast performs effectively and efficiently. Multicasting is a technique which provides an important service for optimizing bandwidth consumption, throughput, and delay of distributed systems when number of users take participate in communication session simultaneously. On-demand routing protocols is used for the route establishment from source to destination only when it is required. AODV and DSR are the reactive routing protocols which uses flooding approach for establishing the route from source to destination.
