Mobility of node is an important subject at the time of clustering in mobile ad hoc network as it directly affects the strength of the cluster. MANETs clustering based algorithms commonly suffers with crash of cluster-head problem, which degrades the cluster stability. This paper proposes, Node Based Cluster Routing Algorithm (NBCRA), a schema to improve the cluster stability and in-turn to improve the performance, through selecting better cluster-head. In the algorithm, node itself observes and accounts its movement and this information is used to select cluster-head.
