We present a new class of closed-form solutions to the Einstein–Maxwell system of equations for a static spherically symmetric anisotropic star in the presence of an electric field by generalizing earlier approaches. The field equations are integrated by specifying the form of the electric field, anisotropic factor, and one of the gravitational potentials which are physically reasonable.We regain some of the earlier solutions of Durgapal and Fuloria (1985), Gupta and Maurya (2011) and Maurya et al. (2015) as special cases. A detailed physical analysis of the solution indicates the physical viability for modelling anisotropic charged superdense stars.

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.
