The aim of our selfish scheduler based on packet weighted energy drain rate in Mobile ad-hoc networks mainly depends on the available least highest-limit of the residual value of a mobile node. The projected work comprises of mechanisms for detecting the selfish node as well as an attitude called rehabilitate-before-malicious behavior for justifying against the malicious behavior of nodes having selfishness. It provides an immediate solution for separating the selfish nodes based on the parameter namely the packet weighted energy drain rate. If PWEDRSS is deployed in an ad hoc environment it not only provides an energetic and immediate solution to become aware of malicious nodes but also can detect selfish nodes which may be fruitless due the deficient energy available, since the restricted battery power is one of the main constraint for all the mobile nodes. The effective and well-organized performances of the projected work are done through ns-2 simulations. The parameters used are the Packet delivery ratio, Throughput, Control overhead, Total overhead and End to end delay. These parameters are computed based upon varying the number of nodes. The outcome forecast that the planned mechanism performs well.
