MANET is mobile ad-hoc network where various wireless nodes intercommunicate to each other. As this network is temporary network. It is the network where source node communicates to the destination node. This network has limited resources. These resources are in the terms of bandwidth. So there is high chance of congestion. To avoid the network congestion various techniques are followed. Each technique has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Each technique is followed with various types of overheads like less throughput, extra load to send the data from source to the destination.

From the above study it is clear that different researchers have put different techniques for congestion identification and removal and there are different reasons for congestion. Due to congestion the deterioration of the network also is taken place. There must be some strong technique using which congestion can be avoided.
