A wireless sensor networks consists of spatially distributed autonomous sensors nodes called motes. Clustering is an effective way for prolonging the lifetime of a wireless sensor network. Current clustering algorithms consumes much time in setup phase and they hardly consider the congestion problem at the base station and inter-cluster communication in wireless sensor network. The proposed protocol deals the minimum energy consumption and congestion less transmission between the multihop

The proposed approach is more scalable than the existing solution.
