Hall effects on the MHD Couette flow between two infinite horizontal parallel porous plates in a rotating system under the boundary layer approximations have been studied. One of the plate is held at rest and the other one moves with uniform velocity. An exact solution of governing equation has obtained in closed form. Asymptotic behavior of the solution has analyzed for large values of magnetic parameter, rotation parameter and Reynolds number. It is observed that a thin boundary layer is formed near the stationary plate for large values of the rotation parameter, magnetic parameter and Reynolds number. The thickness of these boundary layers increases with increase in Hall parameter. The heat transfer characteristic has also discussed on taking viscous and Joule dissipations into account. It is found that an increase in Hall parameter, the temperature in flow field increases.
