MHD flow of an incompressible viscous electrically conducting fluid due to a uniform stream passing over a thick, porous conducting flat plate subjected to a uniform suction at the plate under the influence of uniform transverse magnetic field has been studied taking into account the effect of Hall current. Induced magnetic field has been taken into consideration and exact solutions have been obtained for primary and secondary flows and induced magnetic field. Effects of different parameters have been illustrated using graphs. It has also been pointed out that when the magnetic Prandtl number is very small effects of Hall current, wall conductivity, and thickness of the plate are all negligible.
