Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a network of spatially distributed, autonomous sensors nodes deployed for various kinds of monitoring applications. To enable reliable communications between sources to destination, many routing protocols have been proposed in the past by many researchers. These protocols are designed considering inherent sensor nodes constraints i.e. limited battery backup, memory and computation capacity. Generally, routing protocols in WSNs have been classified on the basis
