I am writing my thesis in Latex.

And I noticed that there are random white spaces and blank pages being added before certain chapters while the code is identical throughout. Let me know what more information is required, to resolve this issue.

As it is my first post here.

    Chapters usually start at a new page. If the page before is not full, there will be white space at the bottom of the page. Also, chapters often starts at an odd-numbered page (two-side layout). Thus, it can happen, that the page before (even-numbered) remains empty. – Heiko Oberdiek Mar 22 '18 at 20:53
  • @HeikoOberdiek Wow, that explains the not so random white page now. But there is also some vertical empty space on the page this chapter starts, compared to other chapters this particular chapter name is shown on 2nd quarter of the page. – Babar Mar 22 '18 at 20:57
  • latex never adds white space randomly, any space is a result of instructions in your document. You need to show the code you have used and say which spaces in the output you need to change. – David Carlisle Mar 22 '18 at 20:57

    you should be able to make a two or three page example starting from a copy of your document and deleting everything not relevant to the question, and add it to your question here. Otherwise it is pretty hard to guess what to suggest. – David Carlisle Mar 22 '18 at 21:00

    Thanks all, Appreciate the comments since I know the reason for empty pages, In creating a smaller document. I removed everything inside the chapters and it looks normal now. So something in the content of chapters is causing it. Will try to debug it myself :) thanks – Babar Mar 22 '18 at 21:29
