Starting from a set of general equations governing the dynamics of a magneto-fluid around a compact object on curved space time, a fairly simple analytical solution for a test disc having only azimuthal component of velocity has been obtained. The electromagnetic field associated has a modified dipole configuration which admits a reasonable pressure profile for the case of fully relativistic treatment of Keplerian type of velocity distribution

Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
