In this article, rectangular shape Micro strip Patch Antenna (MPA) with cut edges is proposed at 2.4 GHz for ISM and Wi-Fi application. The proposed antenna is designed on fr-4 material having standard thickness of (h=1.6mm), relative permittivity (ɛr= 4.3) and loss tangent 0.02. PEC is used as a conducting element for radiating patch and ground plane.  The volume of proposed antenna is 58 x 58 x 1.6 mm3. The proposed antenna resonates at 2.4 GHz having return loss -21dB, gain 3.14dB and efficiency 41%. For achieving good performance of antenna 4 x 4 Electromagnetic Bandgap (EBG) structure is used. By utilizing EBG structure as a ground plane a discernible improvement occur in the performance of proposed antenna. Proposed antenna with EBG structure gives gain up to 68.14dB, return loss -32dB and efficiency 85%. The antenna and mushroom type EBG is designed and simulate in CST microwave studio.
