A sensible and foresighted planned routing protocol has a vital role to add life to the sensor network. Concentrated and iterative path routing, unbalanced load emphasizing, non-scalability property and frequent beacon exchange squeezes the life of stringent energy constraint Wireless Sensor Network. WSN is a special type of Adhoc network with energy, memory and processing constraint factors for sensing the environmental physical quantity and communicating it with other nodes, moving on to the sink via transceiver. Efficiency of protocol can only be profitable if the network is alive otherwise what to do for the novel ideas with the dead network. In this paper, Our proposed cluster based routing algorithm has exploited threshold level based load balancing and role transfer techniques along with multi-assistant cluster heads to cope with the aforementioned power hungry issues. Merger of multihop and direct routing has ameliorated the energy utilization efficiency of our protocol. Initial empirical results have demonstrated the better performance of our idea: TLPER, with respect to above mentioned parameters.
