An exact solution is obtained for the unsteady MHD flow of viscous incompressible, electrically conducting fluid between two disks with reference to non-coaxial parallel axes of rotation. It is rigorously stated that there arises an axisymmetric solution of this problem as referred to a rigid body rotation. The solutions for the velocity distributions are obtained by applying Laplace transform technique. The torque is required to overcome the transverse shearing stress on a disk.
