The present paper encorporates the effet of magnetic field on the incompressible Casson fluid flow between two parallel infinite rectangular plates approaching towards or away from each other with suction or injection at the porous plates. Using similarity transformations the governing Navier-Stokes equations are reduced to a nonlinear ordinary differential equation. Semi-analytical solution is obtained based on the Homotopy perturbation method. Further, the solution is compared with the classical finite difference method separately. The effect of magnetic field on velocity, skin friction and pressure is analysed on flow between two plates with suction or injection, where two plates moving towards or away from each other.
