MANETs are emerging as the torrid research topic in the wireless communication domain. These MANETs are used in emergency cases like military, flood, earthquake, etc. to set-up a fast, easy and feasible network. Proactive is a table-driven protocol, consists of routing table information before setting up a connection. Reactive protocols setup path only when it is demanded by the network. In this paper, we have proposed a protocol that combines the advantages of both cluster-head gateway switch routing protocol (CGSR) and adhoc on-demand distance vector (AODV) to minimize the traffic congestion in ad-hoc wireless network. The results of performance metrics like routing overhead, end-end delay, and packet delivery ratio are enhanced and compared with other clustering protocols like CGSR, LEACH, and DUCS.
