In this paper, we investigate the resistance fluctuations near the Lifshitz transition in WTe2 devices. We identify the Lifshitz transition from electrical and thermal transport studies. The band structure obtained at low temperatures using quantum oscillation measurements consists of two hole pockets and two electron pockets at the Fermi energy, the hole pockets vanish above the Lifshitz transition temperature. The electrical noise shows a conspicuous peak near the Lifshitz transition temperature; we establish this noise to be arising from charge carrier scattering between the Weyl nodes and proximate areas of the bands. Our comparative study of the noise on WTe2 devices fabricated on substrates with different scattering mechanisms elucidates the effect of interband scattering on the physics of Weyl semimetals.
