Ad-hoc networks are useful for providing communication support where no fixed infrastructure exists and movement of communicating parties is allowed. Mobile ad-hoc network shows unexpected behavior with multiple data streams under heavy traffic load when it is send to common destination. Congestion is one of the most important restrictions of wireless ad-hoc networks. Because of congestion the problems like long delay, high overhead and low throughput occurred. To overcome these problems in certain degree many congestion aware and congestion adaptive routing protocols are proposed. These protocols can greatly improve the network performance. In this paper, we present a survey of congestion aware routing protocols for mobile network.
