Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) is a on demand routing protocol for delivering messages in a connected Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET). Connectivity in the network only exists when nodes are in radio range of each other. Local repair is an important issue in routing protocol which is needed for minimizing flooding and performance improvement. In flooding source node forward their route request till it will not reached to destination and also forwarded the route request to their neighbors to create a shortest path from source to destination. Routes can be locally repaired by the node that detects the link break along the end-to-end path.
