The WSNs involved enormous number of smart gadgets known as sensor hubs. The sensor hubs are collaborated together by numerous WSNs and these correspondence procedures are administrated by routing protocols. Execution of sensor arranges to a great extent that relies upon directing conventions, which are application based. Routing is a crucial innovation in WSNs and could be generally isolated into two classifications: flat routing and various hierarchical routing. In the paper, a review on block cluster based routing schemes for WSNs has been made. Strength, constraints of each plan are introduced.
