Present Vision of IoT is to utilize the objects in a smart manner by connecting them through the network. The future vision of the smart city and digital urbanization has come true through this trending networking technology. It uses the number of monitoring or sensing devices having low power consumption. Moreover, the network created by them having the 'lossy' characteristics in terms of link and data-packets, for this type of network RPL has been introduced. RPL is designed to be a convenient and inter-operable networking protocol for resource-constrained devices in industrial, domestic, and city-level environments, intended to support the vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) with thousands of nodes and sensors, interconnected through multi-hop different networks topologies. Although, RPL having some challenging issues i.e. functional and working related. One of them is multicast Reliability issues that arise during the up-down routing (forward routing). In this paper, we present the literature related to work that has been done to overcome reliability issue of the multicast functionality of RPL. Further, we gave more focus on Existing approaches that having the disadvantages like time delay and transmission overhead. Furthermore, our objective is at the end determine the approach that gives efficient reliability to the multicast functionality of RPL and makes the whole LLN reliable.
