Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is the most preferred technology for communication in resource constrained environments. They offer high-quality data propagation with limited delay. Sensor Network can be established with the help of self-configurable nodes to monitor various physical phenomenon. Multicasting in WSN results in low communication control overhead but may lead to congestion, which results in data loss, redundant transmissions, poor throughput and reduced network lifetime. In this paper, we propose a protocol to estimate the Degree of Congestion (CD) at each node to ensure load balance and avoid further congestion within the network. It is demonstrated that the proposed scheme is better compared with existing congestion control schemes in terms of end-to-end delay and energy efficiency.
