MANET is a collection of wireless mobile devices that communicate with each other without the use of any wireline network . In MANET due to its dynamic topology each device is free to move in any direction. MANET have some issues like flooding or broadcast storm problem. These problems arise because of its dynamic topology, broadcasting characteristic and mobility. In this paper different types of broadcasting techniques like probabilistic, cluster based, area based in MANET had been studied, and have analyzed the broadcast storm problem. In this paper a solution for" storm problem" in reactive routing protocol by reducing rebroadcast messages have been proposed. The above mentioned problem have been catered by modifying the data structrure of route request message and have included MPR field . A modified algorithm M-DSR have been proposed that helps in minimizing the control overhead in reactive routing protocol . In this M-DSR data structure of message have been taken i. e BROADCAST MSG and M-RREQ MSG, that will further limit the no of control msg in the network which will increase the protocol performances.
