Mobile ad-hoc network (MANETs)  is defined as an autonomous system of mobile nodes and associated hosts connected by wireless links. Network topology changes due to change in location of nodes in the network. This makes it more difficult to find the routes those packets. In this paper, a Power Aware location aided routing algorithm (PALAR) scheme by reducing size of request zone, limit flooding and use available bandwidth and battery life in an efficient manner.
