**Abstract**

This article, is concerned with finding sufficient conditions for the oscillation and non oscillation of the solutions of a second order neutral difference equation with multiple delays under the forward difference operator, which generalize and extend some existing results.This could be possible by extending an important lemma from the literature.

**Keywords-** Oscillation, Non oscillation, Neutral difference equation, Asymptotic behavior.
