In order to increase the energy efficiency in MANET structure Bee-AdHoc-C is being introduced as best suited technique with stable clustering scheme and proper load balance. For this purpose in order to form the clusters the signal power received and remaining energy of the nodes are considered where cluster merging and cluster splitting are considered for maintaining the load balance. Also in the previous case alternate route is chosen according to hop count. But still in any multi path routing process the traffic when sent through a particular path affects the parallel path and also sometimes increases the jitter in the parallel path. This happens mainly because there is competition among the neighboring nodes in order to find the joint channel in parallel paths. For this a strategy has been maintained for counting the number of active neighbors in a particular direction.
