The performance of incompressible, laminar, boundary- layer flows over a semi-infinite horizontal stretchable plate is considered. The dusty fluid flow problems are modelled and solved in agreement with two-way coupling model. The particle phase momentum equation in the vertical direction is considered where as that for fluid phase is neglected. Here the electrification term added in not from the supply from outside rather it is the generation due to collision of particles So the effects of particle loading and electrification on velocity profile have been studied. From the result analysis it is concluded that electrification and particle density have significant effect on particle phase velocity, whereas carrier fluid phase has negligible effect. The particle phase velocity increases with increasing of electrification parameter and decreases with increase of loading ratio.
